Transfer: You’ll ruin best two years of your lift at Bayern Munich – Saunders tells Mane

Former Liverpool striker, Dean Saunders, has told Sadio Mane that he would ruin the best two years of his life as a footballer by moving to Bayern Munich.

Mane is all set to join Bayern Munich this summer from Liverpool.

The Senegalese international is expected to replace Robert Lewandowski, who wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer.

But Saunders has claimed that Mane will find it too easy in Germany, adding that the Bundesliga will not be a challenge for the 30-year-old.

Saunders told talkSPORT: “Nothing against the club, it’s a great club, but the league is nowhere near a challenge for Mane. He will get goals. They win 5-0 every week, only one team can win the league.”

He added: “It is not a challenge. He will get in his armchair, light a cigar up, he will play for Bayern in third gear and will coast for two years and ruin the best two years of his life as a footballer.

“At the end of his career, if he said to you ‘come and look at my trophy cabinet’, the German league winners medal will be right at the back.

“I can’t believe he is leaving Liverpool, I don’t know. It’s got to this point. He’s 30, I think of all his time at the club, the last six months he’s played the best football, he’s been unstoppable at times.

“He went up the middle when Diaz signed and he started getting better and better at finding the pockets and linking the play up.”
