Neil Mellor admits that Saturday was a dismal day for Liverpool, implying that Sadio Mane is on the verge of leaving Anfield.
Mane is on the verge of leaving Liverpool and joining Bayern Munich.
The transfer to Germany has been accelerated this week after the Reds signed Darwin Nunez as the replacement for the Senegal internationals.
Bayern chief Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed on Saturday [90 Min] that the 30-year-old would be heading to Bavaria.
During the summer of 2016, Mane joined Liverpool for a 30 million contract and has exhibited a remarkable success under Jurgen Klopp.
He has been one of Klopps'' most reliable and consistent performers, assisting the Reds to a Champions League crown and Premier League.
Here''s how Mellor reacted to the situation yesterday.
Sadios'' stint at liverpool has come to an end, according to Sky Sports. I remember seeing him as a Southampton player, believing this man is a professional player. But when he arrived at Liverpool, he was convinced that he was a superior player.
Is it sad?
Yes, in a word.
Mane has been a huge success story for Liverpool, and it is always disappointing to see your best players leave.
The Reds supporters will not only be hurt, but his teammates and the coaching staff at Kirkby.
Mane will have been able to manage when the German manager is unsure how to deal with it, since there is never a special off-the-field drama.
Like most of this Liverpool team, he is utterly professional and there is no doubt that Nunez has the necessary boots to fill.
