Bayern Munich signing Sadio Mane says emotional farewell to Liverpool: Unbelievable time

Bayern Munich signing Sadio Mane has made an emotional farewell to Liverpool today.

Mane's move to Bayern was announced this morning.

The Senegal captain told Liverpool's website: "Obviously it is strange – really, really strange – to no longer be a Liverpool player after six years spent at Anfield.

"But of course I had a great time, an unbelievable time, and since my first day I really, really enjoyed training, playing, at Anfield especially and in front of these amazing supporters. Now it's come to the end, so what can you say?

"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.

"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!"
