Sadio Mane (Munich) is even being criticized for being the worst signing.
Munich lost 0-3 in the first leg of the 2022-23 season European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) quarterfinals against Manchester City, which took place at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 12th (Korean time). Munich lost the first leg and came close to elimination. 토토사이트
Then came the shocking news. On the 13th, Germany’s ‘Bild’ said, “After losing to Manchester City, there was a fight in the locker room in Munich. Manet punched his colleague Leroy Sane in the face and the mood went downhill.”
The two players had a conflict at one point during the match. Sane started and played full-time, and Mane was substituted in the 25th minute of the second half. At the end of the second half, when the team was trailing 0-3, Mane attacked with a dribble instead of a pass. Sane expressed dissatisfaction with Mane’s choice, and the two players responded that they could not understand each other.
In the end, it seems that the emotions on the ground carried over to the locker room. The media also explained that Mane hit Sane because of the scene.
Mane joined Liverpool from Southampton in the 2016-17 season. Mane, along with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino (above Liverpool), built a so-called ‘wife’ line and performed the best. Salah was mainly responsible for scoring, but Mane’s role with dribbling skills and goal-making ability was also indispensable.
Munich picked Mane as a card to fill the void left by Robert Lewandowski, who left for Barcelona this season. Munich paid 32 million euros (about 46 billion won) and guaranteed 420,000 euros (about 700 million won) as a weekly wage. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed regret, saying, “The team’s legend has left.”
But Mane has not shown any of his Liverpool form. He only scored 6 goals in 15 Bundesliga matches, and recently gave up his starting position. Following his sluggish performance while receiving a high weekly wage, he assaulted a colleague. Munich fans expressed their anger toward Mane, calling him “the worst signing in the club’s history.”
