After misfiring for Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League against Barcelona earlier this week, Julian Nagelsmann mentioned that Sadio Mane needs to be more ’self-confident’ while adapting to life with the German giants.
The Bundesliga outfit recorded maximum points in a 2-0 win over Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday with the Senegalese star failing to register a shot at the Catalan club’s goal.
As one of the club’s marquee signings ahead of the campaign, Mane has been adjusting to his new surroundings and currently has five goals in 10 games to his name in all competitions.
After the Barcelona tie, Nagelsmann mentioned that Mane should be more self-confident, while reiterating his happiness at the African star being at the club.
“It’s quite normal as a newcomer, who of course still has to adapt to certain procedures that are a bit different to those at Liverpool,” Nagelsmann said.
“I already said during the week that I would like him to do certain things more. Maybe less looking for the ball or teammates, and trying to be a bit more self-confident.
“But we are happy that we have him and he will put his stamp on our game.”
