Liverpool forward, Sadio Mane has insisted he is happy at Anfield, despite speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid this summer. "I want to win trophies, especially the Champions League", he told Salzburger Nachrichten.

The reigning European champions were said to have identified Mane as one of former manager Zinedine Zidane's top targets prior to his resignation.

"To be honest, this defeat (against Real Madrid in Kiev) was not easy to put away".

Mane did add the usual caveat that "you never know what will happen in the future", though this should not be confused as a hint over a possible move.

"Now's the moment to focus on putting in a good and successful World Cup with Senegal". The defeat is but ticked off.

Mane is being hailed as Senegal's star man at this World Cup, but he insists he is not fearful of the weight of expectation that has been put onto his shoulders.

'I feel no pressure.

Senegal stand a strong chance of progressing to the round of 16, which would be an impressive feat considering this is their first time in the World Cup since 2002 and only their second in history.

Liverpool launched their "deep violet" away kit on Thursday and defender Virgil van Dijk said: "We have the best travelling support in football and I'm excited to run out in front of our fans wearing this strip".
