Liverpool winger Sadio Mane inherits Philippe Coutinho's number 10 shirt for the 2018-19 season, following in the footsteps of John Barnes, Michael Owen and Steve Heighway.

Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has been handed the number 10 shirt for the 2018-19 season.

Mane had previously worn the number 19 at Anfield, but he will now inherit the shirt left vacant by Philippe Coutinho following his move to Barcelona in January.

The Senegal international becomes the seventh player to wear the number 10 shirt for Liverpool in the Premier League era, following Coutinho, John Barnes, Joe Cole, Luis Garcia, Michael Owen and Andriy Voronin.

The iconic number has also notably been worn by Sammy Lee, Terry McDermott, Jimmy Case, Steve Heighway, John Toshack and Mark Lawrenson in the past.

Mane scored 20 goals in 44 appearances for Liverpool last season, including 10 in just 13 Champions League outings.
