Sadio Mané’s forthcoming move to Bayern Munich not only generates positive reactions. Former Liverpool star Dean Saunders finds his words clear and predicts a fate like Philippe Coutinho’s for the Senegalese

Ex-Liverpool star stunned: Former Liverpool star Dean Saunders has no understanding for Sadio Mané’s (30) move to Bayern. “I just don’t get it,” said in an interview with the radio station “talksport”. “Why do you want to leave Liverpool when you’re playing the best football of your life, in the best striker trio ever, to go to Bayern Munich?”

Short, compact, clear

Two players as warning examples: The prognosis of the 57-year-old Welshman: “He will sit in his armchair, light a cigar, play third gear for Bayern and ruin the best two years of his life as a footballer for two years! Look at Coutinho and Wijnaldum!” Coutinho moved to Barcelona in 2018 and Wijnaldum to PSG in 2021. Neither had ever regained their top form.

Title with Bayern worth nothing? When presenter Saunders replies that Mané could also win titles at Bayern, he dismisses it: “He can do that in Liverpool too. At the end of his career, the Bundesliga championship medals with Bayern will be hanging in the back of his trophy cabinet.”
