Sadio Mane Tells Reporter Who He Supports In New Interview, It's Shocked Everybody

Sadio Mane revealed he supports Ligue 1 outfit Marseille after being questioned about his Liverpool future.

The 30-year-old is set to leave Anfield this summer and Bayern Munich is said to be his preferred destination.

He's currently away on international duty with Senegal and his Reds status has been high on the agenda for reporters.

One spoke to Mane following Saturday's 3-1 win over Benin, a game the winger scored a hat-trick in, and asked where he wants to play his football next season.

Mane was asked: "Bayern, Real Madrid or Barcelona?"

That saw him joke: "You know you got me in trouble, you got me in trouble with the Liverpool supporters currently."

The question was then repeated to Mane and he replied: "You know I'm not a fan of these teams. My club is Marseille. I would say that rather than them!"

Marseille are one of the most successful teams in France and are the only team from the country to win the Champions League.

They finished second in Ligue 1 last campaign and will be returning to Europe's elite competition for only the second time in eight years.

It's highly unlikely Mane would move to his boyhood club, but stranger things have happened.

Mane has scored 120 goals for Liverpool and won the Champions League, Premier League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup since arriving in 2016.

Alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, he formed one of the modern era's deadliest attacking trios.

He's keen on a new challenger however and a move to the Bundesliga would give him that.

Bayern are likely to lose star striker Robert Lewandowski in the transfer window as he's determined to join Barcelona.

The German giants made an opening bid of £21 million plus bonuses to for Mane, according to Paul Joyce.

Liverpool turned that down however and are holding out for more.
