Mane’s move to Bayern has this pundit flummoxed
Scottish legend and former Suderland player Ally McCoist has a few questions for Mane regarding his move to Bayern.
The Pundit, in an interview to TalkSport had the following to say about the transfer
“Why is Mane doing it, is it for financial reasons? I don’t know, that’s the question we can’t answer,”
“Is it because he wants to play in another country? Possibly. Is he going to a better league? No.“
“Is Mane going to a more competitive league? No. Is he going to a better team? No. I find it very strange.”:
“The only thing I can see is the lure, the size of the club, Bayern Munich, is that something he’s always wanted to do?”
“I could actually understand it more if it had been Real Madrid or Barcelona. I could understand that a little bit more, because of maybe the lure of one of those clubs, particularly Real Madrid.“
“I don’t get it, maybe Mane just wants a fresh challenge. Maybe he just feels that he’s [gone] a little bit stale, and that I can appreciate.”
