Bayern Munich winger Sadio Mane showcased his character once more this summer.
The attacker left Liverpool in the transfer window to join the German giants.
Mane, who missed the World Cup due to injury, left an impression on youngster Billy Koumetio as the latter eyed a loan move.
During a recent interview with the Liverpool Echo, Koumetio stated: "I spoke to Sadio Mane during the holidays. I told him I would go on loan.
"He supported me, saying if I go on loan, any league that I went to, he will support me and watch the games.
“But I didn't talk to him about exactly the club or league I would go to. I spoke to Divock Origi, who I am close to also.
“Just before I took the flight, I called him. He also called me before he signed his contract with AC Milan.
“They are very close to me and are giving me very good advice."
