“He told me about the situation that he could leave. I was always saying to him, ‘Come on Sadio, stay here. You can win the Premier League and the Champions League right here, don’t leave’.

“But I think he had already made his mind up. We had to respect that. Sadio had a really good story in a Liverpool shirt.

“He played for six years here and during that time he won everything you can win and he decided that he wanted a new challenge. That’s OK.”

Mane left Anfield for Bayern Munich earlier this summer with Jurgen Klopp‘s side receiving a transfer fee of €41 million for a player who had one year remaining on his contract.

Liverpool have brought in Darwin Nunez as a replacement for the Senegalese forward, paying €75 million to Portuguese side Benfica for the 23-year-old Uruguay international.
