🇸🇳 Senegalese star Mbaye Diagne doesn't understand why Galatasaray sold him

Senegalese star Mbaye Diagne does not understand how he was pushed out of Turkish side Galatasaray despite finishing the season with 30 goals. 

Diagne's goal haul helped Galatasaray win the 2018/2019 title and he was largely used as the club's main striker enjoying a lot of game time. 

However, at the end of the season, the Turkish club announced that former Manchester United flop Radamel Falcao will be joining them and so they had to look for space for him. They, inexplicably, decided to sacrifice Diagne to make room for the Colombian. 

The Senegalese forward was put on the transfer market and Belgian side Club Brugge swooped in for the prolific striker.

In an interview with Turkish outlet Habertuk, Diagne is still dumbfounded by the decision by club managers to sell him. 

“I was very confused. We had won both the Championship and the Cup and we didn't expect anything like this. However, these situations occur in the world of football. Galatasaray signed a new number nine and it was important for me to play. However, I found that I was no longer essential. So I decided to move to Brugge FC because the club qualified for the UEFA Champions League," he said. 

His stay at the Belgian side, however, has not been smooth as he was fined and suspended by the club manager Philippe Clement for ignoring instructions and missing a penalty in a Champions League match against PSG.
