Kevin Campbell has claimed Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane is “so underrated” and the “best player at the club”.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Everton striker revealed he is a massive admirer of Mohammed Salah and the injured Virgil van Dijk but the Senegal sensation is out on his own.
