On this occasion it was Dean Saunders who decided to give his point of view on the departure of the Senegalese player. The Briton assured that, leaving for the Bavarian giants, could be a big mistake, as he would ruin the best years of his career in elite football.

“It’s not a challenge. He will get in his armchair, light a cigar up, he’ll play for Bayern in third gear and he’ll coast for two years and ruin the best two years of his life as a footballer.” the former 'red' player shared in a talk for TalkSport.

Why could Mane ruin his career?

One of the reasons why Saunders claims it is not a good step in Sadio's career has to do with the "lack of competition within the Bundesliga". This making it clear that there is only one team capable of winning in Germany and that is Bayern Munich.

Saunders continued to share his thoughts on the move: “He’ll get goals. They win 5-0 every week, only one team can win the league… At the end of his career, if he said to you ‘come and look at my trophy cabinet’, the German league winners medal will be right at the back.”
