“It’s the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club. During my time in Salzburg I watched a lot of Bayern games — I really like this club.

“But I will watch Liverpool, for sure, because I am going to be Liverpool’s No1 fan forever.

“I just want to say good luck to them and I have an eye on them.

“And for sure they will be even better because I know the boys — great players, great talent, great maturity and attitude, so of course, Liverpool will always stay even better.”

Mane excelled after joining Liverpool from Southampton in 2016, bagging 120 goals in 269 appearances for the club.
