Senegalese talisman, Sadio Mane’s return to Liverpool has been rejected by the club’s coach, Jurgen Klopp for two extremely good reasons.
Since Sadio Mane left in the summer, Kolo Toure has been keeping tabs on his old team’s troubles and believes the Reds made the correct decision to not bring him back.
Kolo Toure believes that Sadio Mane’s “big personality” is what Liverpool needs, but he doesn’t anticipate Jurgen Klopp to re-sign the Senegal international due to the two new offensive talents he has introduced to the team in the previous season.
Mane, 31, spent six seasons on Merseyside before leaving for Bayern Munich last summer. While playing for the Reds, the forward established himself as a club legend by scoring 120 goals and helping the team win six championships, including the Premier League and Champions League.
Due to the undesirable result of his transfer, Liverpool supporters have predicted that Mane will rejoin the team. Mane has only scored seven Bundesliga goals this season, while Liverpool is currently fifth in the Premier League standings. But Toure doesn’t think they will get together again.
At the time of Klopp’s appointment in October 2015, Toure was a member of Liverpool’s team. On behalf of BT Sport, Toure stated to Mirror Football that “Jurgen is a top manager.” He has achieved success in both Germany and this country. A phase of change will occur in every club.
I believe it was significant for them to lose [Sadio] Mane… Mane, in my opinion, was remarkable for them because he was both a goal scorer and a goal provider and he had a strong personality. He’s the type of player who can make the difference when the going gets rough.
But I still think Liverpool’s new incarnation is what they’re seeking. In order to restock his squad, Jurgen is searching for players that will complement the existing group of players. But given his vast expertise and excellent man-management skills, I am confident that he will carry out that plan.
“I had a great time with him, and I think he’ll find a way to get the team back in the title race,” she said.
