Steve McManaman claims that a transfer to Liverpool will “cause all kinds of pyrotechnics.”
Despite purchasing Darwin Nunez during the summer transfer window, Liverpool sold Sadio Mane.
Steve McManaman acknowledges that Liverpool deserves praise for the way they handled Sadio Mane’s takeoff.
The Senegal international left Anfield after six years and last week signed with Bayern Munich for up to £35 million.
Mane was a key player for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds and won every award imaginable with them.
Liverpool marked Darwin Nunez for what might end up being a club-record price of £85 million in preparation of Mane’s takeoff.
Additionally, according to McManaman, signing the striker from Benfica was a “proclamation of expectation.”
The former Reds midfielder stated to horseracing.net that Liverpool’s decision to sign Darwin Nez was a declaration of intent. He was quite expensive, and I believe his Champions League displays against Liverpool were what brought him to the team. In the early stages of the Champions League, when I watched him several times last season, he appeared very undeveloped and as like he still had a ways to go.
“He’s just 22 year-old however as the season advanced you could see him improving. I thought his second execution against Liverpool at Anfield was remarkable and that caused Jürgen Klopp to sit up and observe. How rapidly he’s advancing is extremely thrilling yet he needs to continue to work on it as he’s just youthful and this season has been his first champion year.
“He wants to keep getting better so that he can cause a disturbance throughout town, but right now he looks incredibly encouraging. He merely needs to practice patience given his advanced age and relative youth. He’s a different kind of player from what Liverpool now has, he’s young, he has the appropriate constitution, he causes plenty of problems.
Sadio Mané was a wonderful football player for Liverpool, therefore it’s terrible to see him go. But players usually work out a way to leave when they have to.
“He’s contributed significantly to Liverpool over the past few years, and on the off chance that he enjoys playing in Germany, the best thing that might have happened was that Sadio sat down with Liverpool, declared that he needs to leave, and organized a stately leave, enabling Liverpool to sign a replacement as soon as the window opened.
Regarding Liverpool signing Nez and Mané departing, things have been reasonably quiet. In a different year, you might expect that to set off a variety of fireworks, and ultimately, I think Liverpool deserves a lot of credit for the way they handled everything.
