Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has been nominated for the 2018-19 Uefa Champions League best forward award.
The 27-year-old delivered impressive performances in the competition last season to help the Reds win the tournament for the first time in 14 years.
Mane scored four goals in the run to the title, including his brace against Bayern Munich which helped his side claim a 3-1 victory in the second leg of the Round of 16.

Sadio Mane named Premier League Player of the Month
Sadio Mane was today named Premier League Player of the Month for November.
The Liverpool forward was in outstanding form to help his team win all four of their matches and establish an eight-point lead at the summit.
Mane set up an equaliser and headed home a winner as the Reds came from a goal down to beat Aston Villa, then provided the third strike in the 3-1 Anfield victory over Manchester City.
He was on the scoresheet again when Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 2-1 away from home and, as he had in the previous three games, played every minute of the win against Brighton and Hove Albion by the same scoreline.
It is the third time Mane has won Player of the Month, following August 2017 and March 2019.
Jürgen Klopp agrees new Liverpool FC contract to 2024
Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce Jürgen Klopp has agreed a contract extension with the club.
The manager will extend his Reds tenure until 2024, ensuring he will remain at the helm for a further four-and-a-half years.
Assistant managers Peter Krawietz and Pepijn Lijnders have also agreed deals to continue working collaboratively alongside Klopp.
The deal comes after four hugely successful years in charge of Liverpool for the 52-year-old and will ensure the long-term foundations for the team’s – and indeed club’s – development will continue well into the next decade.
And Klopp has detailed his belief that the benefits for both parties of this agreement mean there is nowhere else in world football he’d want to manage.
The German said: “For me personally this is a statement of intent, one which is built on my knowledge of what we as a partnership have achieved so far and what is still there for us to achieve.
“When I see the development of the club and the collaborative work that continues to take place, I feel my contribution can only grow.
“People see what happens on the pitch as a measure of our progress and although it is the best measure, it’s not the only measure. I have seen the commitment from ownership through to every aspect and function of the club you can think of.
“When the call came in autumn 2015, I felt we were perfect for each other; if anything, now I feel I underestimated that. It is only with a total belief that the collaboration remains totally complimentary on both sides that I am able to make this commitment to 2024.
“If I didn’t I would not be re-signing.
“This club is in such a good place, I couldn’t contemplate leaving.
“I must also highlight the role of our sporting director, Michael Edwards, in this journey so far. His input and collaboration has been just as important as anyone else’s in getting us into a position to compete for the game’s top titles.
“For anyone in football who aspires to compete in an environment where every element of the organisation is at its very best – from the support of the supporters to the vision of the owners – there can be no better place than this.”
