Former Manchester City player Trevor Sinclair blames Liverpool for Sadio Mane’s exit. He believed the Senegalese star was not appreciated so he went to Bayern Munich.
Mane is one of Liverpool’s key players. He played a role in the success of the Reds won the Premier League and Champions League.
Unfortunately now Mane is not with Liverpool anymore. He decided to continue his career in the Bundesliga by strengthening Bayern Munich.
Mane moved to the Allianz Arena for a transfer price estimated at 32 million euros. The 30-year-old player is tied to a contract for three seasons or until 2025.
Go As Legend
Mane left Liverpool after contributing a lot to the club. Sinclair calls Mane Mane leaving as a Liverpool legend.
“Sadio Mane’s transfer is clearly universally accepted now that he is leaving Liverpool Football Club as a club legend,” Sinclair told talkSPORT.
“But I keep hearing some fans and ex-players say ‘I don’t know why he left?’ Let me tell you why he left.”
Mane’s Reason to Go
Sinclair said there were a number of reasons that made Mane decide to leave Liverpool. One of them, Mane feels unappreciated at the club like Virgil van Dijk or Mohamed Salah.
“One, I don’t think he has ever been praised and appreciated at a football club like Virgil van Dijk or Mo Salah.”
“Two, the fact that Liverpool let his contract pass to last year shows that that’s how they feel about him.”
Because of this, Sinclair can understand that Mane has finally decided to part with Liverpool after six years at Anfield.
“Mane is a man of principle, you’ve seen him buy hospitals, buy schools and others in his hometown of Senegal and it’s for this reason that I feel Sadio Mane’s thoughts, you know, I’m leaving, I’m leaving the club.
“He is having fun, he has become a club legend but I don’t think he can play after that.”
