Thomas Tuchel shows faith in Sadio Mané despite poor performances

Sadio Mane

Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel has spoken out about Sadio Mané ‘s troubles. Mane, who moved from Liverpool to Bayern last summer, has struggled to find his rhythm after scoring five goals in his first six appearances for the Bavarians. Bayern Munich striker Sadio Mane got an opportunity to show off his skills on the left wing today. But it was shockingly comparable to his previous performances for the club.

Tuchel acknowledges Sadio Mane’s potential.

Mane’s debut season in Germany has not gone as planned. He has yet to regain the form that he displayed for Liverpool. The Senegal international has scored 12 goals and contributed five assists in 35 games this season, a far cry from his figures for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

“Sadio started as a left forward, which I think is his best position from his time at Liverpool. Our game today was more focused on the right because the linkup between Nous (Mazraoui), King (Coman), and Serge (Gnabry) was better than left between João (Cancelo), Jamal (Musiala), and Sadio. João was often isolated”, Tuchel said (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).

“The situation is as it is. (Mané) has to keep his head up and keep working. The guy scored countless goals in the toughest league in the world.”

Mane scored 120 goals and provided 48 assists in 269 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions. It will be fascinating to see if he can regain that form in the following weeks.

However Mané missed 1 big chance and had only 15 touches in his last match. While Mané has struggled for Bayern Munich, some of Liverpool FC’s rivals have been kicking the tyres on the Senegalese attacker. Arsenal FC and Chelsea FC, in particular, are said to be interested in Mané, who might be a “one-and-done” in Bavaria. Chelsea are said to be interested in signing Sadio Mane from Bayern Munich. Surprisingly, the German giants intend to sell the winger just a year after signing him from Liverpool for €32 million.
