Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane reveals he had absolutely no idea winners of the Premier League received medals – The Sun

SADIO MANE did not realise that he would get his own medal if Liverpool won the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp's side are closing in on in their first league title for 30 years after dropping just two points this season.

Mane, who has scored 15 goals this term, has only just found out that players receive a medal if their team wins the title.

He told BBC World Service: "I heard yesterday that if we win the league, we will have a medal.

"I never knew that happened, but I don't care about medals."

Liverpool narrowly missed out on winning the league last year as they finished just one point behind Manchester City.

The Reds need just 12 more points to seal the deal this year – but their title charge is in doubt due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

The Premier League may be forced to hold emergency crisis talks to decide whether Liverpool can be crowned champions.

Despite his side sitting comfortably at the top of the table, Mane has admitted this season has been far from easy.

Mane, 27, added: "Easy? Oh, I wish.

"We know the Premier League is the best league in the world and every single game you have to give 100 per cent if you want to win.

"It's what we always try and I think it's working very well but we have to keep working hard to get what we want.

"Our target from the beginning was to win the league, so if we win it, it will be great for the club and for the fans."

Mane claimed that Liverpool winning the league would be "massive" in Senegal as the Merseyside giants have a huge fanbase there.

He said: "Two years ago it wasn't the case – there were more Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid fans but now it's Liverpool everywhere.

"When Liverpool play now it's like the national team is playing, so if we win this trophy, it will be massive."
