Liverpool Football Club head coach Jurgen Klopp heaped praise on his Senegalese winger Sadio Mane for his prolific performance against Porto in the first leg of the Champions League Round-of-16 fixture.
Mane scored a hat-trick to help his side thrash home club Porto 5-0 and take a healthy aggregate lead before heading to the second leg at the Anifield.
"Tonight he (Sadio Mane) showed again what a fantastic player he is. He was always important, he was always fantastic for us, even in his not-that-good moments," Klopp was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Wednesday.
"That's a real quality if you are not 100 per cent and still scoring, maybe not that often but involved in goals then that's really important," the German tactician added.
