has told

ESPN Brasil

: “I don’t know, but this year, he hasn’t given me any assists yet.

“I say: ‘Why don’t you give me more assists? I think I already gave some to you’.

“But, of course, he always gave me a lot of assists. So, thanks, Bobby, and in the next few games, I’ll do everything I can to give you some.”

Mane added: “He deserves more credit than me and Mo for sure.

“He's always seeing [opportunities for] goals, but I think without Bobby I don’t see myself or Mo scoring as many goals as we do, to be honest. Because he makes everything easier for us.

“I think Brazil are just lucky to have Firmino. I’d love to… I always say ‘Bobby, you have to change your nationality and come to Senegal’, which for me would be a dream.

"I just love him. And as a team-mate I think he’s my favourite team-mate. I love him.”
