Video: Mane flops with header after amazing Thiago Alcantara Karate kick pass for Liverpool against RB Leipzig

Liverpool were presented with a remarkable opportunity to score in the 23rd minute of this evening’s Champions League knockout tie against RB Leipzig.

After a free-kick into the box by the Bundesliga outfit was cleared, Thiago Alcantara proved why he’s one of the best passers in the world with a spectacular Karate kick attempt to launch the ball forward.

Mohamed Salah was left in behind, the Egyptian charged forward but saw a shot fired straight at ex-Reds ace Peter Gulacsi, a rebound spilled out to Sadio Mane and an unfortunate moment followed.

As the ball bounced up, Mane decided to attempt a header, but the Senegalese superstar drove his effort straight into the ground instead of the gaping goal, he also fired over the bar as well.

Mane should be kicking himself after this miss, which would’ve been a massive confidence booster for himself and the summer recruit.
