Sadio Mane says he would understand if Liverpool were denied the Premier League title although they are 25 points clear and agonisingly close to their first top-flight triumph in 30 years.
"I want to win the games and I want to get the trophy, it's what I would love," he said. "But with this situation, whatever happens I will understand.
"It has been difficult for Liverpool, but it has been more difficult for many millions of people around the world. For myself, it's my dream and I want to win it this year. If that's not the case, I will accept. Hopefully we will win it next year."
