The agent of Bayern Munich’s midfielder, Sadio Mane has broken the silence about the reason why the Senegalese decided to leave Liverpool.
Mane’s agent, Bacary Cisse was speaking in an interview with the Echo which was reported on the official Twitter account of Anfield Watch on Sunday, June 26th, 2022. According to him, Mane and Liverpool did not have any issues concerning wages during his time at the Merseyside club.
We didn’t want to talk about that. A player of Sadio’s calibre can’t be earning the salary that people are speaking about. The numbers circulating are completely wrong.
Sadio was already earning more than that when he joined Liverpool from Southampton. He extended his contract in 2018 and his salary was much higher than the numbers circulating in the media.
There were reports that Mane was among the least paid Liverpool player earning £100,000 a week. However, the Senegalese have moved up the ladder as the highest-paid African player following his move to Bayern Munich.
The midfielder had earlier said that the reason, he decided to join Bayern Munich was because he wanted a new challenge.
Cisse: “Sadio was already earning more than that when he joined Liverpool from Southampton. He extended his contract in 2018 and his salary was much higher than the numbers circulating in the media.”
