Arsenal striker Aubameyang makes Sadio Mane claim and reveals strange Liverpool role model

Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes every team in the Premier League would love to have Sadio Mane in their ranks.

Liverpool striker Mane has scored more than 80 goals since joining from Southampton in 2016 and Aubameyang – who worked with Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund – revealed a deep ‘respect’ for his rival during the recent international break.

“Sadio is the player of the Africans,” Aubameyang told Senegalese paper Stades and relayed by WiwSport.

“He’s also the type of player every manager would like to have in their team. Like all African players in the Premier League, we tease each other, joke before and after each game. But Sadio, once the kick-off is given, he’s a beast.

“I have a lot of respect for him, because after what you see on social media and the news, he’s someone who’s done a lot for his native village.”

Arsenal captain Aubameyang also disclosed a surprise idol in the form of controversial former Liverpool striker El-Hadji Diouf.

The 31-year-old, who was raised in France but represents Gabon internationally, admitted Diouf became a hero to to him during the 2002 World Cup when he starred for Senegal.

“I got to know the Senegalese national team thanks to El Hadji-Diouf, who was playing in Lens at the time and who made us dream,” Aubameyang continued.

“I loved El Hadji-Diouf so much, that in 2002, I colored my hair with white powder, my friends did the same.

“After each [Senegal] match at the 2002 World Cup, we danced and sang, my friends and I, because there were many players in this Senegalese team who played in the French championship ”
