Mane reproduces special celebration after scoring for Liverpool vs West Brom

Sadio Mane repeated his now-famous 'copied' celebration after opening the scoring for Liverpool against West Brom.

The Senegalese forward out the Reds ahead in the 12th minute against the Baggies when he fired in impressively after being found by a lofted ball from Joel Matip.

It was Mane's second goal in as many games as he followed up last week's strike in the 7-0 victory over Crystal Palace, a goal which had ended a recent drought.

After that strike Mane was seen pointing to the heavens in a celebration he has copied from Reds fan Lee Swan, who featured with the forward in a recent club video in which Lee scored goals in front of the Kop.

When asked by Mane what his favourite celebration is, Lee – a volunteer at The Florrie in Liverpool, a centre for community projects and food distribution – kissed his finger and pointed to the heavens, saying that the celebration was for his granddad.

Mane insisted he'd 'copy' the celebration, and after doing so at Palace he then rolled it out again against the Baggies.

Speaking in the video, Mane said: "I'm proud to be part of Dear Liverpool FC and to be part of making a difference during these challenging times. And it is an honour to help recognise the work that Lee, Timo [fellow volunteer Timo Tierney] and the Florrie have been doing.

"Giving Lee the tour was a highlight of lockdown. He is a real character and it was a pleasure to help him realise his dream of scoring at Anfield."
