The Senegal international is set for another reward after his imperious performances last season for the Reds

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has been nominated for PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award.

The 27-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2018/19 season with the Reds, scoring 26 goals across all competitions, including his 22 in the Premier League which saw him emerge as the joint-winner of the Golden Boot.

His form helped Jurgen Klopp’s men finish the season as runners-up behind champions Manchester City as well as qualify for the Champions League final, where they will take on Tottenham Hotspur on June 1.

On the back of these performances, the Senegal international has been shortlisted for the individual prize along with teammate Virgil van Dijk, Manchester City trio of Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling as well as Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

Next month, Mane will be expected to lead Senegal to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The Terenga Lions have been drawn in Group C along with Kenya, Tanzania and Algeria.
