Bayern Munich signing Mane: These two players will replace me at Liverpool

Bayern Munich signing Sadio Mane is confident he won't be missed by Liverpool.

Mane has nominated Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz as two players he believes are ready to fill his place.

He told Liverpool's official website: "Wow, for sure, Bobby (Firmino) and Mo (Salah) – what players! I think there are no other secrets because playing alongside these great players, they make everything easier for me.

"I think I am just supporting this and especially Bobby, who always dropped and made space for me and Mo, I think it was just incredible. These two players, Liverpool still have great players. And you have now Diogo and Diaz also – wow, what a player they have!

"But it's normal, it's the best club in the world, so I wish them all the best. But for me football is always about dedication and to work very, very hard. That's what I trust and those players did it and are doing it, so I think it will work always well for them."

Mane also vowed to be "Liverpool's No 1 fan" while at Bayern and added: "After every one of my games in Munich I will come to the dressing room and I will watch Liverpool, for sure, because I am going to be Liverpool's No 1 fan forever.

"I just want to say good luck to them [the Liverpool players] and I have an eye on them. And for sure they will be even better because I know the boys: great players, great talent, great maturity and attitude, so of course, Liverpool will always stay even better, for sure."
