The squad aims to win the Champions League, admitting the fight for the English title is over, Liverpool midfielder Sadio Mane has said.
“We were aiming for the Champions League, the Premier League, and the cup competitions at the start of the season. I would tell you that at the moment it’s over for us in the Premier League because the difference is too wide. We’re mentally reminding ourselves never to give up, and we’re not going to,” Mane told ESPN.
“But Manchester City is a fantastic team, of course, and breaking into the top four is our main target now. And the League of Champions. We know that it’s not going to be easy because we’re going to have to beat Europe’s best teams. But if it is possible, that is what we are here for. So we’re going to try and win the Champions League.”
Liverpool is currently in 6th place in the EPL standings after 25 rounds, with 40 points. They’re 19 points behind Manchester City’s leaders. In a nominal away match, the club beat RB Leipzig 2-0 in the first leg of the Champions League last eight. On 10 March, the return leg takes place.
