As football supporters get used to the sight of seeing Sadio Mane in a different shade of red, the Bayern Munich attacker has already gained fan favourite status in Germany.
In what was a bitter pill to swallow for many Liverpool fans, Mane joined Bayern ahead of the new 2022/23 campaign. The Senegalese star put pen-to-paper in a £35 million deal in June, closing a successful six year spell with the English giants.
Now though, it appears that Mane has already carried his fan favourite status over to Germany, as he recently mentioned his appreciation to the supporters who have been showing him love.
“Yes, and I was very happy,” Mane told the Bayern official website.
“The fact that children climb trees especially for me motivates me immensely, of course.
“I want to do my best here every day in training and in matches – for the team and the fans.
“I still remember to day that as a child, I admired great players and wanted to be like them. That’s why it’s very important to me to make children happy with my play.
“Children they say, are also the most honest critics.”
