Speaking on ITV while covering Jurgen Klopp’s side 3-1 win in the Community Shield final over Man City, Keane took a swipe at the Senegalese winger.

He said: “Who’s that, Mane?”

Clearly the outspoken Irishman thinks Liverpool will not miss their former player too much having strengthened their attack this year with Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez.

The Uruguyan striker, Nunez, has pressure on his shoulders following an £85million move from Benfica.

But after netting his first goal for the club versus City, Keane is confident he can shine at Anfield.

He said: “It’s about getting that first goal under belt. [He’s] up and running.”

Nunez has big shoes to fill in replacing Mane as part of Liverpool’s front three after the 30-year-old won six trophies at the club scoring 120 goals.

But signs are positive especially as his pre-season form has been good netting four goals in one match.


Keane continued to praise the Reds also commenting on Mohamed Salah.

He said: “He’s a brilliant player, he’s outstanding. There was never a doubt about his professionalism, I think the contract is now put to bed.

“Quality player. He’s fantastic.”

Salah is not the only player with his contract situation sorted after Diogo Jota put pen to paper on a five-year deal earlier today.
