Sadio Mane has revealed he had “no doubts” about leaving Liverpool to join Bayern, having followed the club during his time at Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg.

He said: “I’m very happy to finally be with FC Bayern in Munich. We had a lot of talks and I felt the great interest of this big club from the start.

“So there was no doubt in my mind right from the start: This is the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club, also internationally.

“During my time in Salzburg I followed many FC Bayern games – I like this club very much!”

In a separate farewell interview with Liverpool, Mane explained it was important for him to leave the club on good terms, saying: “I sent a long text to say goodbye to everybody, which is normal. They were sad, as I was, but it is part of life. We just have to accept it.

“That was the plan from the beginning – to leave Liverpool in a very good way. It was fantastic in the club, in the dressing room.

“I am friendly with everybody, the coaching staff and even the kitchen staff, the ladies in the kitchen! So, for me leaving in a good way is so, so important – and [for] the fans as well.”

Sadio Mane’s jersey number has not be revealed at the time of this report and he is expected to join up with his new team mates soon for pre-season training.
