​BVB chief Watzke hits back at 'arrogant idiots' criticising Mane joining Bayern Munich

Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has hit back at "arrogant" comments regarding the transfer of Sadio Mane from Liverpool to Bayern Munich.

Former Liverpool star Dean Saunders stated Mane had made a choice to go to an easier league in the Bundesliga, where he would not face any great challenges with Bayern being the dominant team.

However, Watzke does not believe such comments are fair or accurate.

"There are always some arrogant idiots like this one," Watzke told Bild on Saunders' comments.

"As a member of the board of Europe's club association ECA, I know that German football still has a good reputation.

"The English didn't win any of the three European Cup titles in the past season!"
