Mane caught the eyes of his Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp during the German reign as Dortmund's manager after his impressive outings for his national side in the 2012 Olympic.

In 2014 a switch to the Budesliga was close for Mane who was at Austrian top-tier league side RB Salzburg but the move later slipped off after which the Senegalese ended up signing for Southampton.

Jurgen Klopp has revealed regret over the negotiations which went halfway at that period but was able to correct that error when he took over as the Reds manager.

"We were together in an office and I spoke to him.  

"Afterwards I wasn't sure but that was really my fault!  

"He's an outstanding boy and life gave me a second chance to work with him and hopefully we can both use it."

"The time I have spent with him [Sadio Mane] has been fantastic. 

"I love the boy!

"He's an outstanding player."
