The club’s players presently sit idle with the Premier League on hold and the team face the prospect of missing out on a first championship triumph in 30 years.
The pandemic has placed the future of the 2019/20 campaign in doubt, with Liverpool holding a remarkable 25-point lead at the top of the table, having won 27 of their 29 matches.
The Premier League confirmed last week that the season will only return when the health situation stabilises, leading to some suggestions the campaign could be called null and void.
“He (Klopp) is someone who’s really, really positive and right now he’s more positive than ever, which is his strength and which makes him so special,” Mane told Reuters.
“He’s always sending messages to the players to talk about things and he’s always positive, always positive, which is incredible for him.
“Hopefully this season will be not be made void and Liverpool will become (champions). It has been an unbelievable season for me and my team mates and we are 25 points (ahead in the league), which is incredible.”
“Yes,” the Senegal striker said when asked if he was pleased Liverpool had changed their mind and would continue to pay the staff in full, rather than claiming back 80 percent of their pay up to 2,500 pounds (3,087.25 dollars) per month under the government scheme.
“It’s a really, really good club, like a family —- the coaches, the staff, the players, everybody. The fans as well, you can see how good they are and how passionate they are behind their team.”
“It’s something I’ve thought about since I was young. In my mind I wanted to do something for my village.
“I grew up there and we were not wealthy and it’s a really, really small village and I know the conditions of life are not optimum.
“It’s a really tough moment, not just for Senegal but for all the world, and I think what is really important is to stick together and try to do the best to fight against this sickness, which is really bad. And in Senegal it is also growing.”
