Last summer, Bayern Munich paid a record fee for Liverpool veteran Sadio Mané. The Senegalese forward was signed to replace the departed Robert Lewandowski. Mané has been inconsistent for Bayern Munich since then, but now that he is back from injury, he is eager to make a significant contribution. Mané continued his views by saying that many teams play heavy pressing, which he appreciates. Mané seemed to be content with his decision. Sadio, we’re glad to have you as well.

When looking back on his transfer to Bayern Munich, the newcomer had plenty to say. “I never had doubts. When I decided to leave Liverpool, I only wanted to go to Bayern, to the Bundesliga. I know the league from my time in Salzburg, I didn’t watch Premier League back then, but the Bundesliga. Bayern was very attractive to me back then,” Mané told.
Often the Bundesliga is seen as a development league for the Premier League but Mané sees things quite differently. “I get different feedback even from my former colleagues in the Premier League. I’m sure that we’ll soon see more Premier League players coming to the Bundesliga,” said Mané.
Mané went on to add that the league is tight and balanced with a great atmosphere.
“It’s often said that the Premier League is tougher and more physical. Many people think that way. On the pitch here, I noticed: ‘Wow! The players here are really strong’ — the Bundesliga is at least as physical as the Premier League,” Mané said.
