Sheffield United favourite George Baldock says Liverpool ace Sadio Mane is the toughest opponent he faced last season.

Baldock explained why Mane is so dangerous for the new Premier League champions.

He told the Telegraph: "I always say the toughest opponent by far was Sadio Mane.

“If he's not running at you with the ball then he's running in behind you without it.

"He's coming short, going long, making diagonal runs. He's always looking to get behind you and that's a nightmare for you.

“Sometimes when wingers want the ball to feet, it can be slightly easier, but he's just a world-class player and by far the best I've played against.

"I want to play against him again, 100 per cent, and have another go, I relish playing against the best players and I want to play at this level for the rest of my career."
