Transfer Rumors: Sadio Mane Linked With £70m Move To Borussia Dortmund

The star forward of Liverpool Sadio Mane is linked with a move to the German side Borussia Dortmund for a reported fee of £70m according to reports. The German giants are in serious need of a versatile forward.

The void is believed to be filled by the Senegalese International Sadio Mane according to reports. Mane is one of the best players of Liverpool as he is loved by the fans a lot. He scored a total of 97 goals for Liverpool in his five Liverpool seasons.

Transfer Rumors: Sadio Mane Linked With £70m Move To Borussia Dortmund

But this year was his weakest year in football of his five year Liverpool career which is believed by a lot of Liverpool fans. Even in his worst campaign he netted the ball 16 times in total and in his last game against Crystal Palace, the match Liverpool had to win to achieve a top 4 spot in the Premier League, Sadio Mane scored twice. So it can be easily said that he is far from finished.

But it seems like his Liverpool career is coming to an end with the end of this season as Liverpool may not be considering to keep the twenty nine year old anymore and they might have been looking for a potential replacement as well.

A number of giant sides are reported to be in pursuit for the Senegalese International. Borussia Dortmund is the strongest link of them all as it stands. The German side is reported to be preparing a £70m bid for Sadio Mane.

Liverpool are also looking for a potential replacement for the Senegalese star man. Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho is believed to be one of the prime targets for the English giants. Sancho was linked with Manchester United last year but the Red Devils could not pay the high price set by the German side as reported.

So, there might be a potential swap between the forwards. As Liverpool fans are also looking to have Sadio replaced with some young talent like Sancho. Dortmund fans would love to have Sadio on their side as well. Let us see where this saga ends.

Sadio Mane Felt His Teammates Didn’t Want To Pass Him The Ball: Victor Wanyama Reveals Mane’s Frustration At Southampton

Sadio Mane and Victor Wanyama formed a great attacking pair while their time at Southampton. However, 2016 proved to be a disastrous year for the club as the par left them in the same year, both for different teams. While Sadio Mane moved to Liverpool in a high-profile deal, Wanyama also left the Saints for Tottenham Hotspur.

Now that the incident has grown old, Victor Wanyama has revealed Sadio Mane’s frustrations towards his teammates which in somewhat manner forced his exit from the club. Wanyama has said that at one point Mane started feeling that his teammates at Southampton did not want to pass the ball to him.

Wanyama, who left St Mary’s Stadium for Tottenham in the same summer as Mane departed has now shed light on Mane’s frustration with his teammates.

Victor Wanyama Reveals Sadio Mane’s Frustration At Southampton

“We were like a family under one father [Mauricio] Pochettino, but Mane and I forged a bigger brotherhood bond. [Morgan] Schneiderlin was also a great friend,” Wanyama said.

“At one point, Mane approached me and told me, ‘Hi man, these guys do not want to pass the ball to me, can the two of us play closely? They don’t want me to score.’ I reluctantly agreed and anytime I got the ball I would pass it to him though. I wanted to treat him right since he is a good and nice guy,” Victor Wanyama added.

Sadio Mane Had Impressive Stats Coming Into Liverpool

The Senegal international forward joined the Saints in the summer of 2014 and found the target on 25 occasions across 75 appearances – with that return including the Premier League’s quickest hat-trick. His efforts on the south coast would earn him a high-profile switch to Liverpool in 2016, with Mane’s game having been taken to even greater heights at Anfield.

Mane and the entire Liverpool squad returned to training from May 18 after it was announced that Premier League is planning a restart after the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic. Liverpool are currently on top of the Premier League points table and need only 2 wins in their 9 games to lift the trophy this year.

Mohamed Salah And Sadio Mane On Target As Liverpool Thrash West Ham United In Season-Opener

Liverpool proved their title-credentials by dismantling West Ham United in their English Premier League-opener at Anfield on Sunday. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge were all on target as the Reds thrashed the Hammers 4-0.

The home side began the proceedings on a dominant note and deservedly took the lead in the 19th minute. Naby Keita, who made an impressive debut, carried the ball and passed it to Andrew Robertson who crossed low for Salah to tap in to an empty net. Prior to that, Fabianski had denied Salah thrice.

Mane then put the Reds firmly in command by scoring in the added time just before the break.  James Milner volleyed back a Robertson cross into the middle before Mane found the back of the net to double Liverpool’s lead.

Jurgen Klopp’s men started the second half on the same note as Mane scored just eight minutes after the restart to put the game to the bed. Roberto Firmino was the architect of Liverpool’s third, cleverly feeding the ball through to Mane just inside the area to control and shoot low past Fabianski. The goal, however, was a but controversial as replays showed Mane was offside by a good distance.

With the result of the game almost sealed, Klopp did not hesitate in withdrawing all three of his forwards – Firmino, Mane and Salah – during the second half.

And the final substitution put the iciing on the cake as Sturrdige scored Liverpool’s fourth in the dying minutes.The England international, who was marking his return to Anfield after spending time on loan at West Brom, met Milner’s corner at the back post and found the back of the net to give Liverpool a flying start.

Naby Keita

Who Played the Vital Role in Making Naby Keita a Liverpool Player?

New Liverpool signing Naby Keita says he consulted with Sadio Mane before deciding to move to premiere English football club, Liverpool.

The former RB Leipzig player hopes to help the club improve on their success last season.

Keita will officially become a Liverpool player after agreeing to join from RB Leipzig on July 1 (Sunday).

Even though Keita will become a Liverpool player on July 1, he has completed a first training session at Melwood on Wednesday (June 28) ahead of the start of pre-season next week.

Kieta has revealed Mane has played a major role to inspire him to become a red.

The dynamic midfielder has remained close friends with Mane from their time as teammates at RB Salzburg in Austria. They both are represented by the same football agency, arena 11.

Keita told in Liverpool’s official website: “I chose Liverpool because it is a team I watched often and I also spoke a lot about it with Sadio. He told me a lot about the team and the club. Sadio is like family to me. We were friends at Salzburg and he was like a brother to me. After training we used to go home together. He was my best friend there. I’m looking forward to being his teammate again.”

The 23-year old star Naby Kieta already had a meeting with his new manager.

“I also spoke with the coach [Jurgen Klopp], who told me about the project for the team and that motivated me to be here. When you see how they performed last season it makes me want to do the same and to be a part of this team. I would like to be able to achieve a similar kind of season with them next season but even better,” he added.

Liverpool triggered a release clause in the 23-year-old’s contract in August that only came into effect in at the end of the 2017-18 season.

Kazan (Russia), June 26: Japan’s squad took part in a recuperative training session here on Monday, a day after it kept its last-16 hopes alive with a gritty display to grind out a 2-2 draw against a strong Senegal team.

The winner of Group H will go on to play the runner-up in Group G, which will now be either England or Belgium.

Japan face Poland on Thursday.


2018 FIFA World Cup: Japan vs Senegal – Match Preview

Two teams – Japan and Senegal – would be keen to build on their stunning starts to the campaign when they take on each other in the second game of Sunday.

Japan and Senegal head into a crucial clash as the outcome of this game will not only be key to their fate in Russia but can also decide the final outcome of Group H.  The pair is currently occupying the top two positions in a group that also has Colombia and Poland.

Japan started their campaign with an impressive 2-1 win over Colombia although the latter played virtually the entire match with ten men. Any question marks raised by the eleventh-hour appointment of coach Akira Nishino were cast aside thanks to the stunning show by the Asian outfit. Buoyed by the good show against Colombia, Japan will enter the contest high on confidence.

However, they should avoid any complacency against a team that marked its first World Cup-appearance since 2002 with a 2-1 win over Poland. In doing so, Senegal became the first African country to score a World Cup goal against Poland and also the first African country to win in the ongoing competition. A win against Japan will put Senegal on their way to replicating the glory forged by the nation’s iconic Class of 2002.

FIFA World Cup 2018, Match 16: Poland vs Senegal – Match Preview

The second game of Tuesday’s three games will see Poland meeting Senegal as the final two teams to enter the 2018 World Cup clash in Moscow.

Senegal, ranked 27th in the world, will be hoping for Liverpool star Sadio Mane to inspire them out of a group that also includes Colombia and Japan. Senegal are entering the competition in not so impressive form. In their last warm-up game, they beat South Korea 2-0. But prior to that, they were struggling to find form.

Draws against Uzbekistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Luxembourg were followed up by a 2-1 defeat to Croatia ahead of their most recent victory.

On the other hand, eighth-ranked Poland will be banking largely on their talisman Robert Lewandowski. While Poland will start the game as slight favourites, the history is against them. The Europeans have not gone beyond the group stage in the World Cup since 1986, with their best finish being third in the 1974 and 1982 tournaments. Compared to Poland’s record, Senegal, in their solitary World Cup appearance in 2002, surprised many by reaching the quarter-final stage. But with an impressive squad at their disposal, Poland will be eyeing a good show this year.

The city of Kyiv, Ukraine hosted the biggest game of the year as far as club football is concerned, with Real Madrid and Liverpool locking horns against each other for the UEFA Champions League Title 2017-2018.

It was also the clash of the Titans, as many viewed it as a face-off between icons, Mohammad Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo.

First Half

Starting off, the first twenty minutes of the game shifted from one end to the other, with both the teams struggling for possession and accuracy.

23rd minute – The game saw its first shot on target with Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold having a shy. Navas had to make a save to avoid Arnold a goal.

25th minute – In hindsight, the turning point for Liverpool came when their ace striker, Mohammad Salah collided with the mercurial Sergio Ramos.

Salah took a bad blow to his shoulder and immediately left the pitch, leaving the army of Reds in shock.

29th minute – Salah came back onto the field after tending his shoulder, but could only stay for a minute before weeping his way out of the ground.

34th minute – The game saw yet another casualty, but this time from the Real Madrid’s camp. Carvajal, who went tumbling down from a tackle, suffered a horrible hamstring injury, which did not allow him to take part further in the contest.

Much like Salah, Carvajal too cried his way off the pitch, jeopardizing their chances for the upcoming World Cup in Russia.

42nd minute – The White Sharks had their first opportunity, just at the stroke of half-time, from Ronaldo’s header and then Benzema. The French netted the ball inside the goal, but it was deemed as offside.

Half Time score: RM 0-0 LIV 

Second Half

After an uneventful first half, the real action began in the second, where both sides went on the offence.

48th minute – Lallana, who was substituted for Salah, almost made a meal of a challenge, just in front of the goal, giving Isco an opportunity to strike for Real Madrid.

Fortunately for the Reds, the ball hit the top bar of the goal, devoiding an opportunity for the Spanish to strike for the first time in the match.

50th minute – German international, Kroos, delivered a challenging volley which went straight to Liverpool goalkeeper, Loris Karius.

Benzema intercepted a pass from Karius to his defender, which went straight inside the goal, leaving one and all befuddled with his rookie mistake.

Score: RM 1-0 LIV (Benzema 50′)

54th minute – Before the Whites could get over the celebrations; the Reds delivered a fabulous counterattack through Milner, who provided an opportunity with his dangerous cross.

Madrid’s defender Varane tried to evade the ball with a header before Firmino missed the nets. A corner kick was awarded for Firmino’s effort.

Henderson took a brilliant kick towards Lovren who smacked the ball with a header. Navas made a brilliant save, but the ball ricocheted off him, giving an opportunity to Senegal’s Sadio Mane, who obliged with his equalizers.

In Comes Gareth Bale

Score: RM 1-1 LIV (Mane 54′)

64th minute – Zinedine Zidane’s move to substitute Isco with Gareth Bale in the 61st paid dividends almost instantly, as Bale scored within three minutes of substitution.

Bale scored the best goal in the history of UCL finals with his overhead bicycle kick from a brilliant Marcelo volley, which the goalkeeper had no answer to. Thereby, giving the lead to Madrid.

Score: RM 2-1 LIV (Bale 64′)

70th minute – Mane tried to repeat his feat with another counterattack. The Senegalese made a brilliant turning attempt with his left foot, which hit the right post of Navas.

82nd minute – In a match full of tackles and tumbles, the first yellow card registered in the dying moments of the game. Also, Ramos showed all his experience to wait for Mane’s challenge which got the Liverpool striker a yellow card.

84th minute – The final nail in Liverpool’s coffin came from Gareth Bale again who scored from way outside the box, with the swirling strike.

To add to Karius’ horror outing, the ball went through his hands, giving Real Madrid their third goal.

Score: RM 3-1 LIV (Bale 84′)

The final few minutes of the game saw both teams going through the motion. Despite three minutes of additional time, there was no surprise in store.
