Watch: Mane Reveals What Carra Told Him At Half-Time In Brilliant Interview
Sadio Mane bagged his first Champions League hat-trick last and he's revealed some words of wisdom were spoken by Reds' legend Jamie Carragher at half-time of the game.
Away at Porto in the last 16 first leg, Mane opened the scoring in the 25th minute before Mo Salah notched a brilliant second four minutes, giving Jurgen Klopp's side a healthy two-goal lead at the break.
But Carragher, in attendance for the game, wasn't satisfied with that and told Mane he wanted him to score more goals, as revealed by the Senegalese international after the game.
Check out the brilliant interview, with Mane also prompting some giggles when he talked about "getting the three points" in a knockout game:

Carra simply told Mane to get another goal and he went a step further by scoring a further two, sealing his hat-trick with superb strikes in the 53rd and 85th minute in the 5-0 thrashing.
Having netted a trio of goals, he was of course entitled to claim the match ball - but he owes a lot to teammate Andy Robertson for giving the ball after it was in the possession of a ball-boy.

"I had to go running after the ball boy for his ball at the end - he was nearly upset!" the former Hull man told the official Liverpool website.
"Luckily, I managed to get it. They were three class finishes from him."
