Ademola Lookman: How Sadio Mane Shaped My Game Style

Super Eagles forward; Ademola Lookman has said that his game style has been patterned after Senegalese forward, Sadio Mane.

Lookman played for Charlton Athletic, Everton, RB Leipzig, Fulham and Leicester City before moving to Serie A side Atalanta.

The Nigeria international joined Atalanta for a fee in the region of nine million euros paid to Leipzig at the start of the 2022-2023 season.

The winger has scored 24 goals and made 12 assists from 65 all-competition appearances.

The former England youth teamer has now revealed that his game is shaped on former Liverpool star Sadio Mane.

“The guy who I always looked at the most would have to be Sadio Mane,” Lookman told The Athletic.

“Looking at his threat in the box, his threat in those little tight spaces, his movement — I have watched a lot of his game in particular.

“I watch my clips back, and it’s nice to be able to see your performance from a different perspective.

“It gives you more belief in knowing that you’re getting better and developing in certain areas.”
