Sadio Mane has revealed his imminent move from Liverpool to Bayern Munich is the right decision at the right time.

The 30-year-old recently spoke to BILD about his reasons for leaving Liverpool for Bayern Munich, while adding that there was interest from other clubs. Sadio Mane said (as quoted by Liverpool Echo):

“When my agent first told me about Bayern’s interest, I was immediately excited. I saw myself there right away. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world and the team is always fighting for every title. So for me it was a very good idea and the right decision to come here.

The Senegalese forward, whose contract with the Reds was due to expire next summer, added:

“My agent told me that there were enquiries from other clubs. That’s part of the business. But I got the feeling right away when Bayern presented their plan to me. I found myself in Bayern’s plan more than anyone else.”

Sadio Mane lifted the UEFA Champions League title once with Jurgen Klopp’s side, having competed in three finals. Asked if he would like to repeat the feat with Bayern Munich, he said:

“I don’t want to say no. Every kid wants to win the Champions League, every football player in the world. I’m with a very, very competitive team now.

Mane concluded:

“But it’s still a bit early to talk about the Champions League final, we haven’t even played a game together yet. Nevertheless we will give everything to get into the final.”
