After completing his transfer to Bayern Munich, Sadio Mane declared that he would now become Liverpool’s biggest supporter.
After six illustrious seasons at Anfield during which the Reds won every competition they participated at least once, the Senegal great departs the club.
On Wednesday, his transfer to Bayern was finalized, and he sat down with Liverpool’s club channels for one more interview before his departure.
Mane initially explained that speculation about his future last season didn’t get to him, commenting: “There was a lot…of speculation but I’m not a confused boy in my head. Obviously I know what I want and I know what is professional so for me, I was not even thinking about it because I was still a Liverpool player and we had really, really important games.
“For me that time was so, so important for myself and the team and the boys, and the supporters as well, and that is why I was really, really focused on that. I did not want [to make] any comments about it because winning the Champions League and the Premier League, that would have been fantastic for myself, for the club and for everybody.
The Reds will receive 32m euros (£27.4m) with an additional 6m euros for Mane based on appearances, plus 3m euros for individual and team achievements.
