With plenty of the campaign left to play, Mane insists Jürgen Klopp’s side remain laser-focused on tackling each challenge as it comes.
The No.10 told Liverpoolfc.com: “Until the team is successful and I’m also successful, for me I think it’s necessary to sacrifice myself to give everything possible for the team, and the team will give me [that] back for sure – every single player.
“But what you have seen in these last few years, everything is possible and we can do it and do it again. We just need to be hungry in a good way and push ourselves until the end.
“When we lost the [Champions League] final against Real Madrid… I think that everything changed and we said to ourselves, ‘It’s possible’. We also have a young team and from that, I think everything changed.
“We got more belief and we get more confidence and we said, ‘Everything is possible, why not try? We all want to win things, so why can’t we make it together and do it?’ I think that’s working very well.”
The attitude and work ethic displayed on a daily basis at Melwood leave Mane confident about maintaining the standards set so far in 2019-20.
Liverpool have claimed 64 points from a possible 66 in the top flight this term, while lifting the Fifa Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup, in addition to reaching the knockout rounds of the Champions League.
“For sure, they [the supporters] only see what we are doing on the pitch every single weekend and the success as well,” Mane continued. “But the work starts with yourself at home professionally and hard work on the training ground.
“You can see, every single day from day one when I came to Liverpool, players want to improve more and want to get better and better.
“You can see the gym one hour before training is completely full. I think that’s a very, very big sign for the club because everybody wants to play and everyone wants to be the best. I think that makes things special.
“From the training ground, everything starts there and it’s just really important. It’s normal that fans are getting so excited to see the team playing well and being successful. That’s why we are working every single day.”
