Liverpool star player Mohamed Salah has taken to his social media pages to wish Sadio Mane good luck after Mane completed his £35.1 million summer transfer to Bayern Munich on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.
The Senegalese international joined Bayern Munich after spending six years at Liverpool and establishing himself as a legend at the club.
Before he left the Premier League club, Sadio Mane won all the trophies available in club football and was also part of the players who have been carrying the club.
After his departure, Mohamed Salah, his major strike partner at Liverpool, sent the 30-year-old Senegalese winger a farewell message, thanking him for the good times they had together.
Recall that the two African players and Brazilian Roberto Firmino formed a famous front three which was very hard for any team to stop.
A message Mohamed Salah sent to Mane read: “It’s been quite a ride! Thank you for all the good times and I wish you all the best in your new adventure! You will be missed by all of us.”
While Mane replied via Instagram saying: “Keep doing your things. Brother, you are the best.”
The Senegalese captain signed a three-year contract with Bayern after he made it clear that he won’t renew his contract with Liverpool which was expected to expire next year.

Jurgen Klopp’s farewell message to Mane
Sadio Mane was one of the first players Jurgen Klopp signed when he joined Liverpool as head coach from Borussia Dortmund. The German went ahead to turn Mane into one of the best players in the world.
He played him as a left-winger but use him more as a center forward last season.
When Sadio Mane was about to seal his move to Bayern Munich Klopp said: “It’s a big moment. There is no point in anyone trying to pretend otherwise. One of Liverpool’s greatest ever players is leaving and we must acknowledge how significant this is.
“He leaves with our gratitude and our love. He leaves with his status among the greats guaranteed. And, yes, he leaves in a moment where he is one of the best players in world football.
“To be that good for such a sustained period and continuously improve season on season – no matter how high he set his own bar in the previous one – is an example to any player anywhere on the planet that professionalism and dedication leads to reward. “I respect completely his decision and I’m sure our supporters do also.
“If you love LFC, you have to love Sadio – non-negotiable. It is possible to do this while accepting our loss is Bayern’s gain. We wish him nothing but success in every match he plays in, unless, of course, it’s against us. His star will continue to rise, I have no doubts.”
Sadio Mane is expected to be a replacement for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski who desires to leave this summer or the two stars will pair with Lorey Same in front.
