Why Sadio Mane left Liverpool to join Bayern Munich?
Here’s what Sadio Mane said about joining Bayern Munich:
“My life has always been a challenge. When my adviser informed me of Bayern’s interest for the first time I was all flame and fire. I could instantly see me there. For me it was the right club at the right time. It is one of the world’s biggest club who always battles for all titles. For me the feeling was right when Bayern presented their plan. I saw myself in Bayern’s plan more than in any other.”
Mane will be leaving Liverpool after 269 appearances. He scored 120 goals in all competitions. He also played a very crucial role in Liverpool’s Champions League title in 2018-19 and the Premier League crown a season later.
Bayern wanted to add more spark in their attack after wingers Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane lacked consistency in the past season. This move also comes after the confirmation that Lewandowski will leave the club. For the last 2 years, Mane has turned himself into a centre forward. Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga for a 10th straight time but their UCL campaign was not up to the mark after they failed to get past the quarter-final stage in the Champions League.
