Bayern Munich forward, Sadio Mane has come out to say that the love he has received from the club’s young supporters will motivate him this season. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Bayern Munich kids have been climbing trees just to see how and that keeps him happy and motivated to put a smile on their faces when the season starts.
Mane added that he wants to do his very best every day in training and during matches.
His words, “Yes, and I was very happy. The fact that children climb trees, especially for me motivates me immensely, of course,”
“I want to do my best here every day in training and in matches – for the team and the fans.”
“I still remember today that as a child, I admired great players and wanted to be like them. That’s why it’s very important to me to make children happy with my play. Children, they say, are also the most honest critics.”
“My idols back then were Ronaldinho and El Hadji Diouf from Senegal,”
“They were outstanding players. I watched videos of them for hours and tried to imitate everything they did.”
“My mother gave me an El Hadji Diouf jersey, and when I was a bit older I bought one of Ronaldinho’s myself. I worked extra, earned money and saved up for it. It was a dream to wear his name on the back. I didn’t even want to take the jerseys off, I wore a different one every day.”
“Whenever I can, I visit my parents and my old friends in Bambali. It’s a small village, a long way from the nearest town,”
“Life there is very different from Europe. I find it hard to put into words, the cultures are too different and the situation for the people there isn’t easy.”
“That keeps you grounded. When I’m there, I’m the Sadio of old. I play football with my old friends, we have fun together.”
“I always really enjoy going back. My country is made up of 17 million football-mad people, and they’re all Bayern fans now. I think you’ll see a lot of Senegal flags in the Allianz Arena this season.”
