Borrusia Dortmund’s chief executive has criticised a former Liverpool player for his comments on the quality of the Bundesliga. These comments came after Sadio Mane moved to Bayern Munich this summer transfer window.
SADIO MANE MOVE TO BAYERN MUNICH CRITICISED BY FORMER LIVERPOOL PLAYER
Mane recently completed a £35million move to Bayern Munich. This ended his six-year stay on Merseyside. However, before allowing Senegal forward to depart, the Reds brought in Darwin Nunez from Benfica. They received a £35million fee for the forward, who had only one year left on his contract. However, the decision to let him leave Anfield has confused Dean Saunders.
The former Red said he did not understand why Mane wanted to leave Liverpool. “I’m still baffled why he’s gone,” Saunders had told talkSPORT last week. “Why would you leave Liverpool when everybody loves you, the manager loves you, your teammates love you?”. “You’re playing in the best front-three you’re ever going to play in, in your life. You’re never gonna go to a better team than he’s in right now.
DEAN SAUNDERS COMMENTS ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE BUNDESLIGA ATTRACTS CRITICISM
Dean Saunders also questioned the standard of the Bundesliga. The Liverpool legend said Sadio Mane will ruin the best two years of his life as a footballer at Bayern Munich. Although, Saunders’ comments have now been criticized by Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke.
The CEO of the German club has labeled the former Liverpool star as an “arrogant idiot” for his remarks about the Bundesliga. He also made a dig at English clubs for their efforts in Europe the last term. “There are always some arrogant idiots like this one,” Watzke told Bild on Saunders’ comments.
He also said that German football still has a good reputation in Europe’s club association ECA. He also added that the English did not win any European titles last season. However, the Bundesliga sides won a European title. Eintracht Frankfurt eliminated the likes of Barcelona, West Ham, and Rangers to win Europa League last term.
