Former Liverpool star Mohamed Salah the reason for Sadio Mane's departure

Stan Collymore, a former striker for Liverpool, has talked about why Sadio Mane, a Senegalese international, left the Reds this summer and went to Bayern Munich, a move that shocked many Anfield fans.


Stan Collymore told the Mirror newspaper that the main reason for Sadio Mane's departure was his inability to be the first man at Liverpool, with Egyptian international Mohamed Salah at the top of the Reds for the past five years.


Stan Collymore added: "Any player who has played at Bayern Munich will tell you how professional they are, their facilities, and the things that the club has to offer to create an incredible experience. Playing in Germany will be a new challenge, and I think he is ready for it. "


Stan Collymore continued: "I can also understand when Mane says he was not treated as a legend at Liverpool. When you have Mohamed Salah and Manny Firmino, you see them as three; you don't pick anyone as an important man. "


"Sadio Mane's decision to withdraw from Liverpool for Bayern Munich came as a shock to many Reds fans, but there will be a lot of former footballers who fully understand his decision."


He added: "Sadio is, of course, right. Why? Because as a player, sometimes you just have to know when it's a good time to move on and find another challenge.



"Now Manny is at an excellent club in Europe, he can get to the final stages of the Champions League, win the Bundesliga title in a row, win the German Cup and be Bayer's first man," said Stan Collymore.
