On Wednesday afternoon, the Reds announced on Twitter that their one-time Champions League winner has departed for the German champions and he leaves as a ‘club legend’.
Those within the Merseyside boardroom have already reacted as a result of the all-action Luis Diaz arrived throughout the January switch window, while Darwin Nunez joined for big-money earlier than Mane’s exit was confirmed.
But, while there may be plenty of promise coming with these gamers, it’s not going to be simple changing the confirmed qualities, performances and targets of their Africa Cup of Nations profitable star.
And former Tottenham man O’Hara thinks the Reds ought to have carried out extra to cease their star man from leaving, alongside the membership captain.

“I can’t believe they didn’t think about giving him the money that he deserves. When you are a top player and you are seeing players on £300k and £400k-a-week, even with those astronomical fees, Mane deserves to be on that money as well.
“If they aren’t going to pay him the money, then somebody else will. So, he needs to know his worth. Getting into his 30s, so it’s one more big contract for him. I think it’s a massive loss for Liverpool. He is almost irreplaceable. I know they have brought in Nunez. I think it’s a mistake Liverpool have let him go.
“I would be saying ‘Mane we need you’. We have been so successful, missed out on the quad last season, but they have to go again. If I was Jordan Henderson, then I would have been desperate to keep him at the football club. But when a player has had his head turned, and he doesn’t feel his valued enough, then it’s hard to stop someone from leaving.”
WILL MO SALAH FOLLOW SUIT?
Well, at the least the Liverpool followers know that Mo Salah shall be on board forward of the brand new season, however there may be nonetheless no motion relating to his new contract.
Loads really feel that the membership ought to have given Mane what he needed and they need to additionally break the wage construction for Salah.
It will turn out to be extra obvious subsequent season if it was proper to stay with their ideas, if Mane struggles in Germany and Liverpool proceed on their means, then there shall be much less stress to provide Salah what he desires.
Equally, if there may be some battle from Jurgen Klopp’s facet, while Mane thrives over at Bayern, then there shall be extra stress to provide the Egypt worldwide what he desires as a result of then there shall be a worry that they’d lose one other key member of their workforce and undergo for it.
