Liverpool fans have blasted Saido Mane for saying AFCON is the best of his trophies.
The attitude from Liverpool fans is not surprising after their manager Jurgen Klopp called the biggest Africa competition a ‘little tournament’.
In fact, quite a large number of Liverpool fans were not happy when Saido Mane and not Mo Salah won the 2021 AFCON.
A visibly happy Saido Mane declared the AFCON title his biggest title despite helping Liverpool to their first-ever Premier League title in more than 20 years.
And winning the Champions League for Liverpool against Tottenham in 2019.
“It’s the best day of my life and the best trophy [AFCON] of my life.
“I won the Champions League and some [other] trophies but this is the special one for me.
“This is more important for me. I am happy for myself, my people, and all of my family.”
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to slam the history-making Saido Mane.
Here are some of their reactions:
Saido Mane was named the best player of the tournament ahead of Mo Salah.
