Transfer: Mane names two ex-Liverpool teammates who tried to convince him to join other SPL clubs

Sadio Mane says his ex-Liverpool teammates tried to convince him to join their Saudi clubs instead of Al Nassr



Newly signed Al-Nassr forward Sadio Mane has said that Roberto Firmino wanted them to play together again at Al-Ahli.

Mane and Firmino completed a three-man attacking line that also Mohamed Salah at Liverpool. 

The Senegalese then left the Reds for Bayern Munich a year ago.

But after one year in Germany the Africa Footballer of the Year has now joined Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr.

Apart from Firmino, another Mane’s former Liverpool teammate Fabinho also wanted him to join Al-Ittihad.

Mane was quoted by talkSPORT as saying, “I spoke with Firmino and I think he wanted me to come to the wrong club… I’m joking!

“He called two or three times to convince me to come to Al-Ahli…

“At the same time I spoke with Fabinho because he was quite close to me and he also wanted me to come to Al-Ittihad, but I chose Al-Nassr…

“Of course Henderson is here also, and he sent me a message two days ago to wish me good luck.

“I’m going to win against you guys!”
