Liverpool – Sadio Mane left Liverpool and joined Bayern Munich. Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool will miss Mane a lot.
After six years with the Reds , Mane left this summer. The Senegalese player signed a contract until 2025 with Bayern.
Mane is one of Klopp’s mainstays in Liverpool’s attack. The former Southampton man scored 120 goals in 269 appearances for Liverpool and won six trophies.
“One of Liverpool’s greatest players is leaving and we have to admit how significant this is,” Klopp said as reported by the club’s official website.
“He left with our gratitude and our love. He left with his status as one of the great players guaranteed. He left at a moment where he was one of the best players in the world.”
“But we don’t need to mourn this loss, instead we celebrate the privilege we once had. His goals, the trophies he won; a legend of course, but also an icon of today’s Liverpool.”

3 reasons Mane left Liverpool, including Klopp’s comments
There are at least three reasons that made Sadio Mane no longer feel at home at Liverpool this summer until he finally moved to https://minimore.com/b/Gfcy2/1 Bayern Munich.
Liverpool’s 35 million pound transfer deal put an end to the speculation over the future of Sadio Mane for the past few weeks.
Previously, Sadio Mane had made it clear that he had no intention of continuing his career at Liverpool even though he still had one more year left on the contract.
Sadio Mane leaves after six seasons at Liverpool, which saw him win several titles including the Premier League and Champions League. And according to Trevor Sinclair, a former Premier League footballer, there were three reasons Mane left.
“First of all, I don’t think at the club he was as well appreciated as Virgil van Dijk or Mo Salah,” he told talkSPORT Breakfast.
“Secondly, the fact that Liverpool have one year left on his contract gives an indication of how they (the club) feel for him (Mane).”
“Thirdly, I think the main reason is that Jürgen Klopp has ‘lost’ Mane after he downplayed the AFCON tournament until (Senegal) manager Aliou Cisse spoke up and defended AFCON saying ‘you guys only finished second before the players from our continent in Africa started playing for you. ‘.”
