Mané says goodbye to Liverpool and recognizes the quality of Díaz, Jota…

Sadio Mané’s departure from Liverpool has been confirmed. The Senegalese player will wear the Bayern Munich shirt until 2025 after six years playing at Anfield. The transaction was completed for 32 million euros plus variables and follows the arrival of full-back Noussair Mazraoui and midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, both of whom arrived for free. In his farewell, the ’10 ′ of the Reds gave an interview to the website of the English club.

Mané reviewed his six seasons at Liverpool. His achievements, the coaching staff and the fans were some of the topics he touched on. In addition, he highlighted the great offensive trident that he created together with Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, but he trusts the remaining players to fill his place, among them, the Colombian Luis Díaz.

“Bobby (Firmino) and Mo (Salah), what players! I think there are no more secrets because playing alongside these great players makes everything easier for me. I think I’m just rooting for this and especially Bobby who was always coming out of the box and making space for Mo and me, I think that was just amazing. Even so, Liverpool still has great players and now you also have Diogo Jota and Luis Díaz, wow, what a player they have!

In the six seasons dressed in red, Mané played 269 games in which he scored 120 goals and 38 assists. In total he won six titles with the club: Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup, FA Cup, English League Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.

Mané, Luis Díaz’s best partner in attack

During the first half of 2022, Mané and Díaz shared a dressing room at Anfield. In that time, they played 20 games together, which were 16 wins, two draws and two losses, including the Senegalese’s last game in a Liverpool shirt, the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Saint Denis, Paris. The Colombian assisted his partner three times in those games.


Díaz found his best partner in Mané, because he is the one with whom he has had better numbers in attack. Salah assisted him once, the Colombian once assisted Takumi Minamino and, with Firmino and Jota, he had no connection for a goal.

On matchday 33 of the 21-22 Premier League, Mané highlighted Díaz’s great work and his good connection after beating Aston Villa 2-1: “When Luis received the ball, I knew he was going to cross, so I just I wanted to be ready. It was a good cross from Diaz and I was in the area. Even without power, I usually score and that’s what I tried to do. I know him very well, he is a great player. I just try to enjoy every moment. It’s about the team. The boys make it easier for me.”
