“I missed penalty but who cares” – Mane hails Alisson for saving him as Liverpool defeated Chelsea 6-5 on penalties to lift FA Cup title for the 8th time

Liverpool striker, Sadio Mané has hailed teammate Alisson Becker for saving him, after he missed a penalty as Liverpool defeated Chelsea on Saturday, to lift FA Cup title for the 8th time, Newspremises reports.

The Brazilian saved a penalty from Cesar Azpilicueta, which gave Mane the opportunity to seal the victory for Liverpool but the Senegalese played the ball into his compatriot and Chelsea goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy.

The Brazilian goalkeeper then saved another from Mason Mount to save the Africa Cup of Nations winner from the troubled waters.

Kostas Tsimikas stepped forward to stroke home the decisive penalty for Liverpool who claimed their second domestic trophy of the season, beating Chelsea in both.

Mane told BBC after the game, “I think all the credit to Alisson because myself I missed the penalty but who cares. The most important thing is to win the cup and we did it.

“Alisson, all the credit for him. I am happy for him and we are all happy and proud.”
