Sadio Mane Celebrated More Than Curtis Jones After His Screamer Against Everton

Sadio Mane's incredible reaction to Curtis Jones' screamer in the Merseyside Derby was one of the standout moments during last night's FA Cup clash.

The Liverpool-born midfielder, 18, let rip from distance to beat Jordan Pickford in the Everton goal.

And as Anfield erupted into a cauldron of noise, substitute Mane couldn't contain his emotions.

The forward was supposed to be resting up after featuring heavily in recent weeks but instead of taking it easy, Mane sprinted down the touchline to celebrate the incredible hit.

He genuinely celebrated more than Jones himself, a great example of the incredible bond these Liverpool players share.

Twitter user @TerrywardLFC posted the clip on social media shortly after the 18-year-old scored for his boyhood club.

Mane wasn't the only one to express his delight at the youngster's goal. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp beamed as Jones found the back of the net against their local rivals.

He smiled and waving his hand in amazement before applauding the player.

Liverpool fans loved Klopp's reaction to Jones' goal. "Like a proud dad," one social media user wrote while another added: "Pure class."

On the other hand, Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford reportedly joked to Jones that the teenagers goal was 'a cross.'

Following the game, Norwegian journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft tweeted that the duo enjoyed a casual meeting in the tunnel at full-time.

"I was standing in the corridor between the two dressing rooms at Anfield with the matchwinner Curtis Jones." Florjoft said.

"Jordan Pickford just passed and said to Jones: - Great cross! Love that kind of banter."
