It was an excellent month for the Senegalese forward who ended the season in style, grabbing four goals and an assist to ensure European football next season for the Saints, winning Shoot’s Southampton Player of the Month award.

Mane helped Southampton to a top-six finish, with some stand out performances during the final month – notably the 4-2 victory at home to Manchester City where Mane ran riot, sealing a memorable hat-trick.

The forward was also influential in the Saints’ impressive 2-1 victory away at title-chasing Tottenham before Ronald Koeman’s side then ended their campaign with a 4-1 demolition win over FA Cup finalists Crystal Palace, where Mane was once again on the scoresheet ending the campaign with 11 goals and helping Southampton gain possible Europa League football next season.

Southampton will have a job on their hands keeping hold of the 23-year-old this summer after another excellent season, with the top European teams sure to be interested in the attacker.
