Liverpool legend Sadio Mane sat down with us for one last time to say goodbye, after completing his move to Bayern Munich.
Since signing for the Reds for £34 million from Southampton, Mane has developed into one of the finest players in world football as he was part of a formidable front three at Liverpool alongside Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah.
In total, Mane made 269 appearances in all competitions, scoring 120 goals. During his six year spell with Liverpool, the Senegalese won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
“I'm very happy to finally be with FC Bayern in Munich. I really have great feelings. So there was no doubt in my mind right from the start: this is the right time for this challenge”.— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 22, 2022

Mane also enjoyed success on the international stage with Senegal, as he scored the winning penalty in the Africa Cup of Nations final against Salah's Egypt. He later help his country get the better of Egypt again to seal a spot in the upcoming 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Mane pushed for a move away this summer as he wanted a fresh challenge, but after news broke that he reportedly asked for a major pay rise to stay at Liverpool, his agent, Bacary Cisse has branded the rumours as ‘false’.
He said: “Those are false rumours. We didn’t want to talk about that.”
“A player of Sadio’s calibre can’t be earning the salary people are speaking about.”
“The numbers circulating are completely wrong.”
“Sadio was already earning more than that when he joined Liverpool from Southampton. He extended his contract in 2018 and his salary was much higher than the numbers circulating in the media.”

Cisse added: “I think Sadio chose the right club at the right time. He won everything at Liverpool.”
“It was time to seek a new challenge elsewhere. Bayern’s project was very attractive.”
With a new challenge ahead of Mane, he will be hoping to carry his form from Liverpool to Munich in order to help his new team win the Bundesliga for the 11th time in a row.
