Former Liverpool striker Dean Saunders has warned Sadio Mane is is wasting two years of his career by deciding to join Bayern Munich.

The Senegal international has enjoyed six fruitful years at Anfield and has been a mainstay of the success the club have enjoyed under Jurgen Klopp.

Mane, however, is keen to seek a new challenge and is excited at the prospect of becoming Bayern’s star attraction should Robert Lewandowski complete his acrimonious departure and join Barcelona.

The 30-year-old, who has scored over a century of goals for the Merseyside club, leaves with Klopp’s blessing but Saunders is struggling to comprehend the former Southampton forward’s decision.

Saunders said on talkSPORT: ‘Nothing against the club, it’s a great club, but the league is nowhere near a challenge for Mane.

‘He’ll get goals. They win 5-0 every week, only one team can win the league.

‘It’s not a challenge. He will get in his armchair, light a cigar up, he’ll play for Bayern in third gear and he’ll coast for two years and ruin the best two years of his life as a footballer.

‘At the end of his career, if he said to you ‘come and look at my trophy cabinet’, the German league winners medal will be right at the back’

Saunders continued: ‘I can’t believe he’s leaving Liverpool, I don’t know how it’s got to this point.

‘He’s 30, I think of all his time at the club, the last six months he’s played the best football, he’s been unstoppable at times.’
