Sadio Mane, a forward for Bayern Munich who moved from Liverpool this summer, recently talked about how he is getting used to life at his new club. Even though he liked the people at Bayern, he said it would take time for him to get used to a new country and team. After six years at Anfield, Mane moved to the Bavarians earlier this summer for about £35 million. He helped the club win many trophies, including the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. In 269 games for the club, the Senegalese player scored 120 goals and set up 49 more.
He had a great start at Bayern. In his first four games, he scored four goals. But he didn’t score in the next five games, including two in the UEFA Champions League. He finally scored in the weekend’s 4-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. The Senegalese player has scored six goals in 12 games across all competitions, but both fans and critics have said that he is hot and cold.
Mane recently talked to UEFA.com (via Mirror) about how he is getting used to his new surroundings. He said, “It is going well. It’s not easy to move from one club to another. I lived in England for eight very nice years, first in Liverpool and then in Southampton. I am now in a new country. It’s hard because people, training, and everything else changes so quickly.”
“Everything is changing, which makes it very hard. I have to change. I knew that, so it didn’t surprise me. It’s going just the way I thought it would. People here are friendly and good at what they do. I’m very happy because the people in the club are so great.”
When Bayern Munich plays Viktoria Plzen tomorrow, Mane will try to score his first Champions League goal for his new team (October 4).
Jurgen Klopp, manager of Liverpool, talks about his team’s draw with Brighton & Hove Albion
Sadio Mane is having trouble with Bayern, and Liverpool isn’t doing well either.
The Reds are currently in ninth place in the Premier League because they have only won two of their seven games. On the weekend, they played Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield and tied 3-3.
Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, told Sky Sports after the game that his team could have done better, especially on defense.
Klopp said, “Our defense could have been much better.” “It’s soccer. you have to deal with it. It’s important to keep going on a day like this when it starts like this. It would be great if you won it. We have trouble every time we play Brighton, who is a good football team, but we need to do better.”
“I’m aware that we have 10 points, and that’s the truth. I’m not afraid of that. Together, we have to build.”
On Tuesday, October 4, Liverpool will play Rangers in the Champs League. Five days later, on October 10, they will play at league leaders Arsenal in the Premier League.
