Liverpool fans have reacted to comments made by Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge after admitting that the club came close to signing Sadio Mane before he moved to Southampton.
The Senegalese forward has been a sensation since his move to Anfield and has scored 12 goals in all competitions this season, who attracted interest from the Bundesliga giants after he made his move to Red Bull Salzburg in 2012.
Mane scored twice against the reigning German champions last season en route to winning last season’s Champions League.
Here is what the Bundesliga CEO told Bild about his near-miss with Mane:
🗣 Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “We had an interest in Mane, but somehow it didn’t work out.
“Then he went to Southampton, and later Liverpool. Pity.”
