As quoted on the Liverpool FC official site, Klopp expressed his satisfaction with his side's performance.
"Tonight he [Mane] showed again what a fantastic player he is".
Liverpool are the competition's top scorers with 28 goals so far and their win in Porto was the joint biggest away Champions League knockout victory, equalling Bayern Munich's 5-0 win at Sporting in February 2009 and Real Madrid at Schalke in February 2014.

That miss would prove just as costly as Otavia's early on, as a Liverpool side at their counter-attacking best took a giant stride towards the last eight early in the second half.

He also downplayed the chances of English clubs, saying the weekly intensity of the Premier League took too much of a toll.
However, despite their impressive European performances this week, Roy Keane reckons the failure of both clubs to win trophies in recent seasons is "embarrassing". Sa got a hand on Mane's resulting shot, but could only watch as the ball agonizingly squeaked under him and crossed the line. It is playing in the last 16 of the European competition for the second season in a row, and is trying to make it to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2014-15.
