Sadio Mane has revealed he will be keeping his house in Liverpool and will be the club’s number one fan after his move to Bayern Munich was confirmed.

The Senegal forward departs Anfield and the Premier League after a six-year spell in which he lifted every club trophy on offer.

Joining from Southampton for £34million in 2016, he now leaves for Munich to join a Bayern side who have just picked up their tenth consecutive Bundesliga crown.

The 30-year-old departs the Reds 14th on their all-time top scorer charts after a spell where he helped turn manager Jurgen Klopp’s side from pretenders into champions, and will forever remain a fan. 

Mane said to the club’s website: “I think whoever is leaving Liverpool, with those supporters you will always miss them because [they are] the best in the world and I have always said it.

“Playing at Anfield I think always gives you so much power because of the fans. So, for sure I am going to miss you guys but anyway, I love you guys. 

“I still have my house in Liverpool and everything so for sure I will come back, of course, and I would love one day to come back to Anfield to say hi to them and of course to watch Liverpool playing because for me, I am going to be Liverpool’s no.1 fan – after the supporters!

“After every one of my games in Munich 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.

“I just want to say good luck to them and I have an eye on them. And for sure they will be even better because I know the boys: great players, great talent, great maturity and attitude, so of course, Liverpool will always stay even better, for sure.”

Of Mane’s whopping 120 goals, his favourite was a hard one to pin down, but it could have been the one that inspired his new side to complete the deal.

“I will say my first goal at Emirates Stadium against Arsenal on my debut. And then after, my second goal, I will say against Bayern Munich, against [goalkeeper] Manuel Neuer! 

“Sorry Manu, I am coming but I think the second goal was also unbelievable! So, I will pick these two goals.

And his best moment? 

“Wow! I think it’s good but not a difficult question I will say! I will go first of all for 2019 when we beat Barcelona at home, that was incredible, and as well when we won the Champions League. For me, so far that is the best, best moment, or the moment that will stay forever in my head, for sure.

A huge part of Mane and Liverpool’s success was down to the attacking trident he created with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, and he was keen to pay tribute to his fellow forwards.

“Bobby and Mo – what players!” he said “I think there are no other secrets because playing alongside these great players, they make everything easier for me.

“I think I am just supporting this and especially Bobby, who always dropped and made space for me and Mo, I think it was just incredible. 

“These two players, Liverpool still have great players and you have now Diogo [Jota] and [Luis] Diaz also – wow, what a player they have! 

“But it’s normal, it’s the best club in the world, so I wish them all the best, but for me football is always about dedication and to work very, very hard. That’s what I trust and those players did it and are doing it, so I think it will work always well for them.”
