IBADAN, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Sadio Mane who recently joined Bayern Munich FC from Liverpool, said he doesn’t see himself as a global star, adding that he will put his best foot forward while playing with the team.
The Senegalese football star stated this in an interview published by Bayern’s club magazine on Tuesday, 2 August, 2022.
According to Mane, all that counts for him is the team which is also shown in Bayern’s motto Mia san mia (We are who we are).
Mane said he does not see himself as a global star despite his long successful run with Liverpool FC and the Africa Cup of Nations title with Senegal.
“People say that about me, but I don’t see myself as a global star at all. I don’t know where to start with that phrase.
“All I care about is being part of the team. I do everything for that. I want to go to the limit for my teammates: score goals, provide assists and win games. I’m here to give my absolute best for Bayern Munich.
“Everyone knows Bayern’s identity. For me, this ‘Mia san mia’ means that the team always comes first. It’s the togetherness that counts, not the individual.
“That’s what makes FC Bayern so special. I can identify with this philosophy very easily because I’m firmly convinced this is the path to success,” he said.
“I want to bring all my experience to the team and help make it even stronger so that together we can all achieve our goals. Nowadays, I’m an experienced player and know how to deal with this kind of pressure,” he added.
