Sadio Mane Leaves Liverpool for Bayern Munich: Sadio Mane, a striker from Senegal, signed a three-year contract with Bayern Munich on Wednesday, and the Bundesliga champions officially announced his acquisition from Liverpool.
According to reports, Bayern paid a sum that might total up to $43 million for Mane. During his six years in Merseyside, the 30-year-old won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, and Club World Cup.
The sense was perfect from the beginning when Bayern shared their plan with me; Mane told the German newspaper Bild. “My agency informed me that there were also inquiries from other clubs, but for me, the vibe was right from the start.”
“The timing of the club was perfect.
It is one of the largest clubs in the world, and the squad is constantly competing for every championship.
Mane also said his goal is to “do everything to ensure that I win trophies with my teammates.”
Bayern won the Bundesliga for the tenth year in a row last year.
Jurgen Klopp, manager of Liverpool, paid respect to Mane.
According to Klopp, one of Liverpool’s all-time best players is departing, and we must recognize how important this is.
He was “a legend, for sure, but he was also a modern-day Liverpool icon” because of the goals he scored and the trophies he won.
A dynamic attacker who has spent most of his career on the flank but can also play in the centre, Mane was chosen as the African player of the year in 2019.
His presence would lessen Bayern’s agony if Robert Lewandowski, a wanted striker, quits the team. Serge Gnabry is also delaying signing a contract extension.
Sadio Mane is a worldwide superstar who highlights Bayern’s appeal and will raise the request of the Bundesliga as a whole, according to Bayern president Herbert Hainer.
“Fans attend games to witness distinctive players like them,”
Lewandowski made it obvious he wouldn’t extend his contract, which ends next year, so the acquisition of Mane relieves some weight off Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.
In 269 appearances for Liverpool, Mane scored 120 goals.
Salihamidzic said, “A major international talent who has made an impact on global football is coming to FC Bayern in the form of Sadio Mane.
“Being able to bring him to Munich makes us happy.
He is joining FC Bayern, which indicates that our team and he have lofty goals.
Mane moved to France at 19 to join Metz, where he spent a season before joining RB Salzburg, where he acquired German language skills.
When he joined Southampton in 2014, he made the jump to the Premier League, and two years later, he joined Liverpool.
As Liverpool won the 2019 Champions League and put an end to their 30-year quest for the English league championship in 2020, Mane played an essential part.
Before Sadio Mane Leaves Liverpool for Bayern Munich he told Liverpool’s website, “I had a fantastic experience, but it is incredibly odd to no longer be a Liverpool player.” “I will always be the biggest Liverpool supporter there is.”
Senegal’s all-time leading scorer, Mane, was a member of the side that defeated Egypt in the final penalty shootout to win the Africa Cup of Nations in February.
