Sadio Mane’s successful move from Liverpool to Bayern Munich, Mohamed Salah wished him well.
After six seasons at Anfield, five of which were spent playing with Salah, Mane left the club on Wednesday in a £35.1 million move to join the German champions. The renowned front three of the Reds, which tore apart opposing defenses and lifted Liverpool to six titles under manager Jurgen Klopp, included the two players as well as fellow striker Roberto Firmino.
Following Mane’s departure, Salah, whose Liverpool contract also expires in the summer, thanked the Senegal international on social media for his repentance, writing: “What a ride it’s been! I’m grateful for all the fun moments and wish you well on your new journey! We all love you and miss you.
Mane commented in response on Instagram: “Keep on moving as you are. You are the best, brother.” After weeks of heated speculation following the Reds’ heartbreaking loss in the Champions League final to Real Madrid in Paris, the former Southampton star has reached an agreement on a three-year deal with Bayern
Will Salah depart Liverpool the next year as Mane did?
In a statement of his own, Klopp backed Salah’s thoughts. “It’s a major occasion. Anyone attempting to claim otherwise is pointless “the Liverpool manager acknowledged on the club’s website after making Mane his first significant signing in 2016.
“We must acknowledge the significance of the exit of one of Liverpool’s greatest players in history. He departs with our love and thanks. His place among the greats is assured when he departs. And, certainly, he departs in a position where he is among the top football players in the world.”
No matter how high he set his own bar in the previous season, Klopp added, “To be so excellent for such a sustained period of time and consistently develop season on season is an example to every player anywhere on the earth that professionalism and devotion leads to reward. I fully accept his choice, as do I believe our fans. If you support LFC, you must be a fan of Sadio; this is non-negotiable. This may be done while acknowledging that Bayern benefits from our loss. Naturally, we wish him the best of luck in every game he plays, unless it’s against us. I have no doubt that his star will keep rising.
In a tearful farewell interview, Mane said, “I will come to the dressing room and I will watch Liverpool, for sure, because I am going to be Liverpool’s No. 1 fan forever. After every one of my games in Munich, I will do that.
“I simply want to wish good luck to them and I keep an eye on them,” the Red Bull Salzburg product continued. Due to the excellent players, talent, maturity, and attitude I know about the guys, I can say with certainty that they will get even better. As a result, Liverpool will undoubtedly continue to get better.
