Sadio Mane has revealed that the novelty of a new challenge was the main reason behind his decision to leave Liverpool.

The Senegalese international played a key role in the Reds’ success under Jurgen Klopp and spent six trophy-rich years at Anfield during which he cemented his status as one of the world’s best strikers.

Mane has just enjoyed what is arguably his best season at Liverpool and judging by his performances for club and country he has emerged as a real contender for winning the Ballon d’Or.

Although there seems little reason for a move, Mane has decided to test himself in the Bundesliga and jumped at the opportunity to become one of the main attractions in Julian Nagelsmann’s side.

Asked if he feels he’s accomplished everything at Liverpool, Mane told the club’s official website: ‘Yes, sure. As I said, from day one, when I came at the club, I spoke to the boss when I was at Southampton and I don’t think we were even in the Champions League at that time.

“He called me and I said, ‘Sure.’ I just decided in my heart that I would come to Liverpool because I see myself there and for me it was the right time and the right club to achieve everything.

“So I can say obviously we won a lot and I had a great, great time there. An incredible time at Liverpool, we won a lot. As I always say, my life is forever [about a] Challenge and when it came I told the club I want to go, I want to go somewhere else to see a new challenge.

“It’s nothing else, it’s just a challenge because I always want to challenge myself to keep getting better.”

While excited about the challenge, Mane is understandably leaving Liverpool with a heavy heart and will miss the fans who loved him during his time at Merseyside.

He added: “I think whoever leaves Liverpool with these supporters you will always miss them so far [they are] the best in the world and i always said so.

‘Especially when [they sing] my name, ‘mane! Run down the wing…!’ – I don’t know, I can’t sing very well! Of course I really enjoyed the time and she, wow… how can I put it? I think playing at Anfield always gives you so much strength because of the fans.

“Well, I’ll miss you guys for sure, but anyway, I love you guys. I still have my house in Liverpool and everything so I will definitely be back and I would love to go back to Anfield one day to say hello to them and of course to watch Liverpool play because for me I go Liverpool’s No. to be 1 – after the fans!’
