Sadio Mane refuses to give German media an interview and says 'you're killing me every day'

Bayern Munich forward Sadio Mane refused to give an interview with German media after he was approached by a reporter amid speculation over his future.

The 31-year-old Senegal international has struggled since completing a £35 million switch from Liverpool last summer.

In fact, after failing to replicate the form that made him such a key player at Anfield, Mane has been heavily linked with a transfer to Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr, who are reportedly interested in bringing him to Riyadh.

Mane, meanwhile, is not believed to be part of Thomas Tuchel's plans this season. The German coach admitted earlier this month that the player has fallen "short of expectations" at the Allianz Arena.

And those comments have certainly sparked rumours over his immediate future.

With rumours swirling over a big-money move to Al Nassr, a reporter tried to approach Mane for an interview at the weekend, although his efforts proved pointless.

Mane instead refused to stop and talk before saying: "You kill me every day, you want me to talk to you guys? Come on."

Here's how social media reacted to the below clip.

One fan said: "Sadio Mane is a nice guy but it appears that even he’s had enough. Can’t say I blame him," while another commented: "It’s heartbreaking to see Mane go through this."

A third wrote: "Typical modern-day footballer. Only wants to be praised. When underperforming, God forbid a journalist should report on such poor performances."

A fourth added: "I'm gutted it's gone like this for him. He started it all at LFC. What a player."

Back in May, it was reported that Mane wants to fight for his place at Bayern Munich, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who said he "wants to stay, win titles and change his history at Bayern next season."

But as mentioned earlier, the words of Thomas Tuchel in his first press conference as Bayern manager spoke volumes.

"Basically, Sadio had an unsatisfactory season and fell short of expectations," he said.

"The competitive situation is extremely high for him with Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry, we have a constellation which makes it very difficult for Sadio. The player knows that too, he knows my opinion and the opinion of the club."

Tuchel added: "Let's see. Crazy things have happened in football. Ultimately, the starting position is not easy. Time will make us a little smarter."
