SADIO MANE did not realize that he would get his own medal if Liverpool wins the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are closing in on in their first league title for 30 years after dropping just two points this season.
Mane, who has scored 15 goals this term, has only just found out that players receive a medal if their team wins the title.
He told BBC World Service: “I heard yesterday that if we win the league, we will have a medal.
“I never knew that happened, but I don’t care about medals.”
Liverpool narrowly missed out on winning the league last year as they finished just one point behind Manchester City.
The Premier League may be forced to hold emergency crisis talks to decide whether Liverpool can be crowned champions.
Despite his side sitting comfortably at the top of the table, Mane has admitted this season has been far from easy.
Mane, 27, added: “Easy? Oh, I wish.
“We know the Premier League is the best league in the world and every single game you have to give 100 per cent if you want to win.
“It’s what we always try and I think it’s working very well but we have to keep working hard to get what we want.
“Our target from the beginning was to win the league, so if we win it, it will be great for the club and for the fans.”
