Mane camp hit out at claims he quit Liverpool over money

A spokesman for Sadio Mane has rejected claims he quit Liverpool for Bayern Munich over money.

With a move now completed to Bayern Munich in a deal that could be worth up to £35million, Mane's six year stay at Liverpool is over and a Ballon d'Or win come the end of the year could be well within reach.

When talking to TV5Monde, Cisse said when asked about the rumours surrounding Mane's Liverpool wage being 'too low': "Those are false rumours. We didn't want to talk about that. A player of Sadio's caliber can't be earning the salary that people are speaking about. The numbers circulating are completely wrong.

"Sadio was already earning more than that when he joined Liverpool from Southampton. He extended his contract in 2018 and his salary was much higher than the numbers circulating in the media."

Cisse was also asked if Mane can win the Ballon d'Or.

"Sadio does not want to talk too much about that. It's an individual award that players want to win. If it comes, so be it, but if it doesn't, Sadio will continue to play his football and go his way."
