Why did Sadio Mane depart Liverpool?
That’s the query a whole lot of Liverpool supporters have been asking themselves just lately.
The Senegal worldwide stop the Reds after six years at Anfield in favour of becoming a member of Bayern Munich.
It was comparatively out of the blue when, after the Champions League last defeat by Real Madrid final month, Mane informed FSG that he wished to depart Anfield in a growth which shocked the membership’s house owners.
According to Trevor Sinclair, there have been quite a lot of the explanation why the previous Southampton attacker walked away.
But the talkSPORT pundit believes that ‘belitting’ feedback made by Jurgen Klopp concerning the Africa Cup of Nations final 12 months performed a distinguished function in Mane’s choice to stop Liverpool.
Sinclair stated: “I keep on hearing some fans and ex-players saying ‘I don’t know why he’s left?’ Let me tell you why he’s left. One, I don’t think he’s ever been lauded and appreciated at the football club like Virgil van Dijk or Mo Salah. Two, the fact that Liverpool let his contract go down to the last year kind of suggests that that’s how they felt about him.
“Three, I think the main thing is that Jurgen Klopp lost him when he came out and belittled the AFCON tournament.”
Last November, the Liverpool boss labelled AFCON as a ‘little tournament‘ in comments which caused controversy at the time due to perceived disrespect, though the German manager clarified his words afterwards.
In any case, the only person who knows why Mane left Merseyside is the player himself and although Sinclair’s idea could have some benefit, it isn’t concrete.
