Senegalese forward, Sadio Mane has today completed a permanent transfer to Bayern Munich after six brilliant seasons with Liverpool.
Sadio departs Anfield with the best wishes of everyone and the complete set of Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, Emirates FA Cup and Carabao Cup winner’s medals.
From his 269 appearances for the club, Mane delivered 120 goals, 38 assists and countless smiles and memories.
“He is a machine,” Jürgen Klopp wrote in April. “What he has done for this club and continues to do puts him in the bracket of ‘legend’.”
Signed from Southampton in the summer of 2016, Mane was a key figure during Klopp’s first full campaign as Liverpool manager, putting them on course to clinch a fourth-place Premier League finish and a return to the Champions League.
His levels – as well as the team’s – would continue to rise year upon year as part of Klopp’s devastating forward line.
The 2019 CAF African Player of the Year helped Klopp’s side make history by ending a 30-year wait to lift the Premier League title.
Mane racked up 22 goals and 12 assists in all competitions throughout 2019-20, when Liverpool became league, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup winners.
