Ex-Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has blasted Sadio Mane after claiming he would leave Anfield if the Senegalese people demanded it.

The Reds striker said an announcement would be made about his future after the Champions League final in May and while that hasn’t happened yet, reports suggest the 30-year-old is moving on after six successful years at Liverpool want.

“Don’t 60 to 70 percent of Senegalese want me to leave Liverpool? I will do what you want.

‘We’ll see soon! Don’t be in a hurry because we’ll see this together. The future will show us.’

While Mane has since claimed he was only joking with the comments and will no longer comment on transfer speculation, Enrique was unimpressed.

“The worst excuse I’ve ever heard from a player to leave a club,” the Spaniard posted on Instagram.

“He is and will always be a legend for us, but please Sadio, you want to leave because elsewhere they pay you more and are fair, but offer the apology of the Senegalese people…”

Mane joined Liverpool in 2016 and is now a club legend, having won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup and Club World Cup.

He scored 23 goals and provided five assists last season as Jurgen Klopp’s side came tantalizingly close to an unprecedented quadrupling of trophies and that form, combined with his Africa Cup of Nations triumph, has him a front runner for this year Ballon d made “Or alongside Liverpool team-mates Mohamed Salah and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.

With just a year left on his contract, Liverpool could be ready to sell Mane with Bayern preparing a £30m bid for the striker, but it’s understood the club prefer to keep their star player.
