Following the conclusion of his transfer to Bayern Munich, Sadio Mane gave a goodbye interview and confessed that it was “very odd” to no longer be a Liverpool player.
The 30-year-old Senegal star signed a three-year contract for £250,000 per week at the Allianz Arena as he chooses a “new challenge” in Germany following six brilliant years at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp, where he won six titles.
Mane, who is still highly regarded on Merseyside, agreed to an interview with the club website at his house in Mallorca. During the conversation, he discussed his six-year stint and was first questioned about how it felt to no longer be a member of the Liverpool team.
After spending six years at Anfield, Mane admitted that it was “obviously unusual” and “very, really strange” to no longer be a Liverpool player.
‘But of course, I had a terrific time, an unbelievable experience, and from my first day I really, really enjoyed the training, playing, especially at Anfield and in front of these incredible fans. What can you say now that it has reached its conclusion?
Mane explained why he chose to leave Liverpool and the Premier League, stating that life is always about “being challenged.” Mane claims to have sent a lengthy text to the team and staff to say farewell.
When the time came, he continued, “I told the club that I wanted to quit and go somewhere else to explore a fresh challenge.”
‘It is nothing more but a challenge for me because I want to continually be challenging myself to get better and better.’
