Sadio Mane opens up on Liverpool exit 

Sadio Mane has revealed it didn't take him long to decide to leave Liverpool, claiming he is joining a 'very, very competitive team' in Bayern Munich. 

Mane has been a key player for Liverpool during Jurgen Klopp's reign as he helped the Reds win six trophies including the Champions League and the Premier League. The Senegalese is on the verge of joining Bayern for a reported fee of£35.1m. 

"When my agent first told me about Bayern’s interest, I was immediately excited," Mane said in an interview with Bild.

"I saw myself there right away. For me it was the right club at the right time."

"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."

On decision to join Bayern

"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."

Mane completed the first part of his Bayern Munich medical on Tuesday.
