Why are we persisting with this underrated rhetoric when it comes to Mane? It's boring and it's patently false.

Who exactly underrates him?

For starters he made the shortlist for PFA Player of the Year last year. Is he underated because he isn't a ballon d'or frontrunner? Serious question
The impression I get is some of our fans are trying to turn Salah vs Mane into a thing, so when they say Mane is underrated they mean it in contrast to the acclaim Salah gets it. Maybe not so much the case on here, but it defo seems to be a thing on like social media and other forums.

Mane was our best offensive player last season (when you add up his chances created, goals and assists).....i don't think any of our fans under-estimate him. I don't wanna turn this into salah vs mane debate  but i do think we lose a lot more when mane is not playing (compared to salah). Thats just my opinion though.

When you add up chances created goals and assists,Salah was the more productive player. Not sure where you are getting your stats from

Remember you pointing this out several weeks ago DF. I find it a little surprising to be honest, but stats don't lie. I believe, during games and watching them back, that Mane seems more involved and is less wasteful on the ball than Mo, yet at the same time Mo tends to pick up cute areas of space and goal scoring positions. Add to that all the delightful things Bobby is forever doing, it's no surprise we have the best front three in world football.

Not a player I'd like to see Sadio compared to.

Neymar for all his natural talent, is a grade a prick, a showpony and a cheat, and now constantly injured.

I'm sure there's a better comparison out there!

Actually, he dosn't need a comparison. He's Sadio Mane.

I feel like Ribery is a much better comparison. Both excellent at wide attacking play, cutting inside or out, beating men, highly productive. But clever and creative as well when dropping inside to do 'midfieldery' type stuff. And also hard working and up for a fight if needed.

I can understand that comparison, but for me Ribery is a traditional winger, where as Mane is a wide forward who can perform in multiple different positions. His goal-scoring is vastly superior. Ribery has 156 goals in 600+ appearances. Sadio is already at 134 in half the performances, and he's 27.

Mane had a fantastic year no doubt, his best year in terms goals in his career. He helped when Mo went on a nine match goalless streak, but given that, imagine had Salah not had as long as a streak, there would have been an even bigger difference between their outputs.

Yeah, I must admit I thought Ribery's goalscoring record was better than that.

Better or worse than the others - not important.

What's important is that he's a vital component of the best front three forward line in the world; along with Bobby and Mo.  Enjoy them.

Exactly and it's a front three we'll be seeing for a few more seasons at least. We're the luckiest football fans to have these three in our team.

Yeah, I think if Mane had of scored in the games he didnt score in, he would have had a better output.  :o

Yeah.  You can see how much they just fucking love it here.  They love their football, they love playing with each other; love the manager, the fans, the club, everything.  They're bouncing.

Not really anything alike in terms of how they play. If you mean in a talismanic sense, then perhaps but that's about where the similarity ends.

to be honest I'd much rather have Mane any day of the week. Such a devastating skilful player with end product who is a good team-man. Neymar is a theatrical, over the top prima donna that happens to be a really good footballer with what seems like a bad attitude.

Love the guy. He is part of the best front line in world football right now. No better no worse than any of them just a vital part of the cog.
