Sadio Mane: Fans say the same thing about Liverpool amid winless run after 3 games

  • A number of football fans on social media are now convinced Sadio Mane was the ‘it’ factor for Liverpool
  • The Reds are winless in their opening three games, and have scored just four goals so far this season
  • On the other hand, Mane is thriving at Bayern Munich and has 4 goals under his belt already

Following their latest slump in the league, Liverpool are now being handed a brutal reality check on social media by a large section of fans.

The Reds find themselves in unfamiliar territory, having failed to win any of their opening three games of the 2022/23 campaign.

Jurgen Klopp’s side is already seven points behind pace-setters Arsenal at the top of the table, and one can easily make a case that their title ambitions are slipping away.

After the game, Klopp seemed to hint that his side’s injury crisis was a key factor in their recent performances as he sets his sights on the Bournemouth game.

"From tomorrow, we will fight against it." He said as quoted by Sky Sports.

But fans on social media beg to differ, as they attribute the Red’s slump to the departure of one man – Sadio Mane.

Here are some of the messages that rang on Twitter after defeat to Manchester United:
