Sadio Mane showed his respect towards teammate Mohamed Salah Liverpool’s Africa Cup of Nations stars announced their return to the Premier League by inspiring their side to a 3-1 win over struggling Norwich City.

Mane’s overhead kick levelled the score after Milot Rashica’s deflected shot gave the Canaries a surprise lead.

Salah then netted his 150th Liverpool goal with a clever shot that wrong-footed the defence before a maiden goal for January signing Luis Diaz wrapped up all three points for the home side.

But Mane’s gesture towards his Liverpool teammate proved the respect the Senegalese forward has for Salah.

It comes as AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho sent his thoughts on Liverpool’s Champions League last-16 tie against Inter Milan.

Speaking ahead of his side’s match against Verona on Saturday Mourinho claimed that he no longer watches big matches if they don’t involve his side.
