Former Liverpool striker Sadio Mane admits his move to Bayern Munich hasn’t gone as planned.
Mane was off to a fast start with the Bundesliga giants, scoring four goals in his first four games. However, he subsequently went five matches without a goal, including two blanks in the Champions League and in the recent loss at Augsburg.
Mane hit 120 goals for Liverpool in 269 appearances and collected six major honours during his time in Jurgen Klopp’s side with the Reds struggling to adapt to life without the forward – who proved to be consistently excellent across his Anfield stint.
Speaking to Uefa.com, Mane explained: “It is going well. Switching from one club to another is not easy. I spent eight very nice years in England, six years at Liverpool [after] two at Southampton, and now I am in a new country. It is not easy because everything changes so suddenly: people, training, everything.”
The Senegalese forward continued: “Everything is changing so it is not easy at all. I need to adapt. I knew that and it came as no surprise. It is happening just the way I imagined it. People here are welcoming, and they’re real players. People around the club are amazing so I am very happy.”
