“I think it is a big loss for the Premier League in terms of quality and in terms of the person. We’ve lost someone great and I hope for him he will enjoy the Bundesliga,” Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy said of Sadio Mane, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
“He’s also a big loss because of his quality, the impact he makes, and also because, for the young players, he’s an example. When you lose someone like this it can have a huge impact.”
Sadio Mane signed for Bayern Munich in June. The duo lifted the Africa Cup of Nations this year and have been instrumental in helping Senegal reach the World Cup.
The Senegalese is in for a new challenge ahead of the World Cup tournaments this winter after leaving Liverpool for Bayern Munich.
