Sadio Mane ‘doesn’t look happy’ playing for Bayern Munich after Liverpool switch, claims Didi Hamann

Sadio Mane ‘doesn’t look happy’ playing for Bayern Munich, according to Didi Hamann… who suggests the Senegalese star is ‘isolated’ because he has ‘not integrated’ in the dressing room since joining from Liverpool

  • Sadio Mane isn’t enjoying life in Germany according to ex-pro Dietmar Hamann
  • Mane joined Bayern Munich from Liverpool for £38million during the summer
  • He started life brightly with three goals in three games but has since struggled
  • Hamann also suggested that the Senegalese international ‘hasn’t integrated’ 

Sadio Mane does not look happy at Bayern Munich, or that’s what Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann reckons after the forward has begun to show signs of frustration in Germany.

The Senegalese hero swapped Merseyside for Munich this summer after winning the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, and Carabao Cup during a six-year stint with the Reds.

Mane was keen to push through his £38million move to Germany as he set his sights on challenging himself in the Bundesliga with Bayern.

But after a scintillating start that saw him score three goals in the opening three games for his new club, Mane has now gone five matches without a goal in all competitions as he tries to adapt to the demands of playing in another country.

Now Hamann, a former Bayern and Liverpool player has questioned whether the 30-year-old is happy in his new surroundings where boss Julian Nagelsmann is deploying him as a centre forward.

‘He is not integrated,’ Hamann told GMX. ‘I saw him at Liverpool FC, where he played through the middle.

‘That is not his position. Now he’s taking that position at FC Bayern as well. 

‘He is at his best when he comes from the outside. He doesn’t look happy to me.

‘Other players like Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala or, in defence, Lucas Hernandez, who is injured at the moment, are putting in outstanding performances.

‘Nobody is talking about Mane at the moment. He seems isolated and hardly takes part in the game. FC Bayern has to get a grip on that.’

Bayern surprisingly sit third in the Bundesliga after six games of the new season, two points behind table-toppers Union Berlin, having drawn three and won three.

In contrast, old club Liverpool have failed to adjust to their star forward’s departure as replacement Darwin Nunez is so far struggling to fill the goals void left by Mane.
