Bayern Munich signing Mane: I loved Liverpool fans singing my name

Sadio Mane has lauded Liverpool supporters as 'by far the best in the world'.

The Senegalese attacker has ended his six-year spell at Liverpool after a move to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

"For sure, I think whoever is leaving Liverpool, with those supporters you will always miss them because so far [they are] the best in the world and I have always said it," Mane said when asked if he'll miss the Liverpool fans. "Especially when [they sing] my name, 'Mane! Running down the wing…!' – I don't know, I can't sing very well!

"Of course I really enjoyed the time and they, wow… how can I say it? Playing at Anfield I think always gives you so much power because of the fans. So, for sure I am going to miss you guys but anyway, I love you guys.

"I still have my house in Liverpool and everything so for sure I will come back, of course, and I would love one day to come back to Anfield to say hi to them and of course to watch Liverpool playing because for me, I am going to be Liverpool's No.1 fan – after the supporters!"
