Sadio Mane has revealed that the interest shown in him by Bayern Munich made him decide to leave Liverpool.
The Senegalese completed his move yesterday after passing his medical at the club. He had just 12 months left on his contract with Liverpool.
Although neither club have officially announced the transaction, Mane had been spotted in Bayern gear and completed his first interview with reporters in Germany.
“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.
“My agent told me that there were enquiries from other clubs. 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 told BILD.
