More Details About Sadio Mane
Mané was born in the Senegalese town of Bambali, Sédhiou. He aspired to be a football player, but his father (an imam) forbade him from doing so as a child; however, his father died when he was seven years old. At the age of 15, he fled his home village and went to Dakar to pursue his dream of becoming a footballer; since then, his family has encouraged him to reach his full potential.
When he was playing in M’Bour in 2009, scouts noticed him and referred him to Génération Foot, a club he helped gain promotion to the second division in the 2010-11 season.
Joining Bayern Munich
Mané signed a contract with Bundesliga team Bayern Munich on June 22, 2022, which would last until June 30, 2025.
The reported fee was €32 million (£27.4 million), with a potential increase to €41 million (£35 million) based on performances and individual and team accomplishments.
“I’m really happy to finally be at FC Bayern in Munich.” Sadio Mane said.
“We spoke a lot and I felt big interest from this great club right from the beginning, so for me there were no doubts.”
Mane added; “It’s the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club, in Europe too. During my time in Salzburg I watched a lot of Bayern games – I really like this club!”.
