Sadio Mane Reveals The Two Players Who Can Replace Him At Liverpool

Sadio Mane was officially unveiled as a Bayern Munich player earlier today, but he made sure he paid homage to his former club beforehand in a touching interview.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Mané revealed he’ll now be “Liverpool’s No. 1 fan” describing the Merseyside outfit as “the best club in the world.”

The Senegal international has also weighed in with his opinion on who will fill the void he will be leaving behind him at Anfield.

Mané would like to see his notorious partners in crime Mo Salah and “Bobby” Firmino carry on playing an important role at the club.


He described his experience playing alongside the pair as “incredible.” He went on to mention how impressed he has been with “Diogo [Jota] and [Luis] Diaz.”

He believes those two will be able to score the goals Liverpool will be missing without him next term.

Jürgen Klopp already used the transfer market to identify a Mané replacement before the Senegal international’s departure was officially confirmed.

Liverpool have signed Darwin Nuñez in a deal worth £85.5 million.

The fact Liverpool felt the need to break their own transfer record to purchase a replacement for Mané shows how valuable the 30-year-old was to them.

Some speculated whether Liverpool would look to add further offensive numbers off the back of Mané departure.

The Reds were reportedly eyeing up Marco Asensio, but he’d prefer to move to AC Milan this summer.

Nuñez also isn’t the only forward to have joined Liverpool already in this transfer window.

Fabio Carvalho has joined the Anfield club from Fulham for an initial £5 million. He’ll provide further depth and competition in Jürgen Klopp’s frontline.

For Liverpool fans though, no one will be quite like Mané. The club website describes him as “one of the best forwards in Liverpool’s illustrious history” and he’ll doubtless go down in Kop folklore as a club legend.

Amid the upset of losing such a significant club figure, Liverpool fans will be excited to see how their frontline is re-shaped as the future beckons Klopp’s ageing squad.
