An open secret that is already confirmed. Sadio Mané is a new Bayern Munich player. The Senegalese has assured that he was excited about the transfer from the moment in which his agent informed him of the interest of the Bavarian giant in hiring him. “I saw myself there at that very moment, it is one of the biggest clubs in the world and the team is always fighting for all the titles. For me it was the right decision.”
The Senegalese leaves the Premier League as the second African who has scored the most goals in the English league, only behind Mohamed Salah. He landed at Anfield from Southampton in 2016, and in his six years with the Reds he won a League Cup, an FA Cup, a Premier League, a Champions League, a European Super Cup and a Club World Cup. During his 269 games with Liverpool, Mané scored 120 goals and distributed 48 assists, forming a devastating offensive trident together with the aforementioned Salah and the Brazilian Firmino.
"The best moment was in 2019, when we beat Barcelona at home," explained the Senegalese. “It was unbelievable, and then we won the Champions League. For me, that was the best moment of all, or at least the one that will always stay in my memory, I'm sure."
What happened in that match
After losing 3-0 in the first leg, Jürgen Klopp's men needed an excellent performance to turn the tie around and get into the final that was played at the Metropolitano. In an attack in which Mané himself participated, Divock Origi scored the first of his two goals of the afternoon. At seven minutes, to give hope to the local parish. Two goals from Georginio Wijnaldum brought Liverpool closer to the goal. With a quick corner kick, Trent Alexander-Arnold caught the Barça defense by surprise and Origi scored again to Anfield's delirium. Against Tottenham, in the final, a goal from Mohamed Salah and another from Origi gave Jürgen Klopp's men the continental crown in Madrid.
