Sadio Mane is my role model — Ademola Lookman speaks ahead of Liverpool tie

Super Eagles winger, Ademola Lookman, has revealed he modelled his game after Senegalese star Sadio Mane.

Lookman is currently regarded as one of the best wingers in the Italian top-flight.

The 26-year-old was Atalanta’s top scorer with 13 goals last season.

The former Everton player has already scored eight goals for La Dea this term.

Mane is known for his pressing, dribbling and speed.

Lookman confessed that he has learnt a lot from the former Liverpool star.

The guy who I always looked at the most would have to be Sadio Mane,” Lookman told the Athletic.

“Looking at his threat in the box, his threat in those little tight spaces, his movement — I have watched a lot of his game in particular.”

Atalanta will face Liverpool in the Europa League round of 16 tie today, April 11.
