The 30-year-old was pictured in Germany for the first time on Tuesday. He signed items for a group of fans and spoke to the German press. Senegal forward was unveiled as a Bayern player on Wednesday after he completed his second part of the medical. This brought an end to Mane six-year stay at Liverpool.
Now the Reds fans have to get used to seeing the crowd’s favorite rip it up somewhere else and even play against them. He gave an interview to German Bild after he completed the move to the German giants. He said, “When my agent first told me about Bayern’s interest, I was immediately excited,”. “I saw myself there right away. For me, it was the right club at the right time. “It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world and the team is always fighting for every title.
Bayern have brought in Mane to help the club reach the biggest game in club football. He has already reached three Champions League finals with Liverpool. Although, he says the talk of reaching the Champions League final next season is too early. He also said that he will be a Kopite forever after completing the move. However, one thing is for sure Liverpool fans will remember the forward for his goals and assists in important games.
