Liverpool star reveals he could play under Pep Guardiola

Sadio Mane says Bayern Munich have been interested in signing him in 2014, when they have been coached by Pep Guardiola.

Senegal international had impressed Catalan coach during friendly match against Bayern Munich in January of 2014, when he was a Red Bull Salzburg player.

Mane told Bild (via Goal): “In January 2014 we had a friendly against Bayern in Salzburg, the coach was then still Pep Guardiola and we surprised them with our way of playing,”

“My adviser Björn Bezemer later informed me that there was contact with Bayern after the match, but I don’t think they were really interested.”

Mane then joined Southampton and impressed EPL with 25 goals in 75 matches. Liverpool bought him in 2016 and he is currently a part of one of the deadliest forward trios in the world.
