I always thought Bayern is the right club for me.


I always thought Bayern is the right club for me.

Sadio Mané: “Servus. I will answer in English and it will probably take another three months before I can speak perfect German. When FC Bayern München showed interest, I spoke to my agent. I always thought Bayern is the right club for me. I’m here to help them win more titles.”

Mané: “I was already at a big club, we’ve had a lot of success together. I’ve always followed the Bundesliga and watched Bayern in the UEFA Champions League. Bayern is one of the best teams in the world. I believe in the project here. We can go far in all competitions”

Mané on Julian Nagelsmann: “We met and spoke. It was very important to get to know him and the project. Brazzo was there too. When they explained to me what their ideas were, I was fascinated. I didn’t have to think twice, I accepted almost immediately. This is the right team for me.”

Mané on his position: “I think the person who can best answer this question is sitting here (laughs and points to Julian Nagelsmann). I’m a player who can play three or four different positions. I’m just happy when the coach doesn’t put me in goal or defense.”

Mané on being a superstar: “I believe that the team is the most important thing. I always try to help the team. That’s what I’m here for and that’s the most important thing.”

Mané on whether he spoke to Jurgen Klopp about moving to Germany: “He’s a great coach and we have a great relationship. But I’ve always watched a lot of the Bundesliga, especially during my time in Salzburg. So I know it very well myself.”

Mané on which shirt number he wants to have: “We haven’t talked about that yet. There are many nice numbers, I will decide when the time comes. That doesn’t really matter to me at the moment.”

Mané on Thomas Müller welcoming him: “Thomas Müller seems like a nice guy, even though I don’t know him yet. I can’t wait to join the team and get to know everyone.”

Mané on what does the move mean for Senegal: “As a player, you always represent your country. We Senegalese always try to represent our colors in the best possible way. Of course, I want to make everyone proud in my home country.”

Mané on what made him choose Bayern: “When Bayern showed interest in me, I spoke to them and was so fascinated by the project that I didn’t have to think twice. I had other offers, but I chose Bayern because they are the right club.”

Mané on whether he spoke to Bouna Sarr about the move: Yes, I’ve already spoken to Bouna. He was very happy that I’m joining Bayern.”

Mané on the upcoming African player of the year award: “These are individual prices. These are the fruits of your hard work. I’m excited to see how it will turn out. Such awards are always motivating, I don’t want to downplay that at all.”

Mané on the secret behind being rarely injured: “It takes a bit of luck, but I take care of my body and work on myself. I have dedicated my life to football..”
