Sadio Mane has revealed that Liverpool will use the previous disappointment as a weapon to win the Premier League this season.
The Merseysiders had a serious title challenge which came during the 2013-14 season when the club finished two points behind Manchester City under Brendan Rodgers.
🗣 Sadio Mane:
“This is not a team of chokers. We will be champions. I am sure we will be champions of England. When I wake up, I don’t go to the training ground thinking we will not win.”

The Reds are currently Premier League leaders with four points clear of City, with 16 games remaining in the campaign.
Man City boss Pep Guardiola has recently told Reds boss that his side will be under pressure of being Premier League leaders.
However, Senegalese international winger Mane has insisted that Liverpool will not choke under the pressure of the title race.
Mane said: “This is not a team of chokers. I am sure we will be champions of England.”
“When I wake up, I don’t go to the training ground thinking we will not win. We are determined to show we are the best team in the league.”
Mane also believes the current squad will use the previous disappointment as motivation that will help them to win the title this season.

He added: “It is not easy to hear people accuse the team of being chokers but we have to ignore it and focus on what is in front of us.”
“Liverpool had the chance to win it a few years ago and did not do it but I prefer to think it helped to bring us where we are now. This is not a team of chokers. I am sure we will win the league.”
