"I am going to be Liverpool’s No.1 fan" - Sadio Mane on Liverpool's supporters

Sadio Mane has said that he will be Liverpool's "No.1 fan" even when he is playing for his new club, Bayern Munich.

With it now being official that Mane has joined the German champions, the Senegalese forward sat down with Liverpool's media team one last time to discuss his best moments whilst playing for the Reds.

When doing so, Mane revealed that he will still support the club from abroad.

"For sure, 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," he told Liverpoolfc.com.

"Especially when (they sing) my name, ‘Mane! Running down the wing…!’ – I don’t know, I can’t sing very well! Of course I really enjoyed the time and they, wow… how can I say it? Playing at Anfield I think always gives you so much power because of the fans.

"So, for sure I am going to miss you guys but anyway, I love you guys. I still have my house in Liverpool and everything so for sure I will come back, of course, and 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!"

Anfield Watch Verdict

This interview has made the whole thing seem a lot more real now. Mane will always be considered a Liverpool legend for his contribution towards the club and it's heartbreaking seeing him say goodbye.

I really hope we don't get Bayern in the Champions League in the next three years, because it would be so hard watching Mane play against us.

As he said, he'll be keeping an eye on Liverpool and supporting us from afar. But, us Reds fans will also be watching his new career in Germany and supporting him too.
