Sadio Mané had his medical completed yesterday with Bayern Munich after switching club allegiance from a red in England to a different red in Germany. Mane moved to Bayern in a deal worth €41m, with a three-year contract agreed. He is likely to earn 250k per week against the 100k he earned while at Liverpool.
The Senegalese had informed close friends he will not be extending his contract with Liverpool and would like to try something else after the UCL final they lost to Madrid in Paris.
Liverpool was among the first list of players Jürgen Klopp signed when he arrived at Liverpool in 2015.
Mane had a transcendent career with Liverpool and is described among the greatest players to have worn the Liverpool colours.
He’s famously remembered for the fastest hat trick he scored against Aston Villa in their 6-1 while at Southampton in 2015. The 16 minutes hat trick record still holds as the fastest.
Former Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, said Sadio is his favourite Liverpool player in this era and admires his athleticism and fitness.
Mane during his interview with Bayern said:
“When my agent first told me about Bayern’s interest, I was immediately excited. I saw myself there right away. For me, it was the right club at the right time.
“It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world and the team is always fighting for every title. So for me, it was a superb idea and the right decision to come here.
“My agent told me that there were enquiries from other clubs. That’s part of the business. But I got the feeling right away when Bayern presented their plan to me. I found myself in Bayern’s plan more than anyone else.
“Every kid wants to win the Champions League, every football player in the world. I’m with a very, very competitive team now. I’m here for FC Bayern. And I will do everything to win titles with my teammates!”
Mane is known for his enormous charity, especially to his home town in Senegal
He netted 120 goals and made 48 assists while at Liverpool. In his whole senior career, he has scored 192 goals and has had 95 assists.
He won every trophy he has competed with for Liverpool and the last edition of AFCON against Egypt of Mohamed Salah.
