Liverpool's winger Sadio Mane believes that his side is yet to see the best from teammate Mohamed Salah, insisting that he enjoys playing with the Egyptian international whom he described as "incredible".

“Mo is a great lad and an incredible player. It is good that he has settled in so easily and there is so much more still to come from him," Mane was quoted as saying by Liverpool's official website on Tuesday.

The 25-year old Salah, who joined the Reds for a club record £34 million from AS Roma in the summer, made a quick impact with the Reds.

Salah, who recently led Egypt to qualifly for the World Cup for the first time in 28 years, is currently the Red's top scorer with 12 goals in 17 appearances.

“We get on well and I enjoy playing with him, but that’s the same with everyone. We have a very exciting team and we all want to help the club be successful," the Senegalese international added.

Mane was playing as a right winger for Liverpool before turning to the left side after Salah's arrival.

“It doesn’t matter to me which position I have to be in because I have played in all the attacking roles -- right, left, as the No. 10, second striker, and No. 9," explained Mane.

The 25-year old Mane, who just returned from an injury, has provided a two key assists that let the Egyptian winger hit the net twice against West Ham United in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Mane's praise for Salah comes just four days after the pair were included in a five-man shortlist for the BBC African Footballer of the Year award.

Mane and Salah are also competeing against each other for the CAF's 2017 African Player of the Year award after being included in the preliminary list earlier in November.
