On Tuesday, August 1, Mane joined Saudi Pro League club Al-Nassr after one season with the Bundesliga champions.

He told Sky Sports that he was sad to leave Bayern, adding, “I was hoping for a different ending.”

Mane joined the Bavarian club last summer, but he suffered a difficult first season due to an injury that prevented him from participating in the World Cup.

Mane ended his time in Germany after making a total of 38 appearances in all competitions, scoring 12 goals.

The two-time African Footballer of the Year won the Bundesliga title as well as the German Supercup after spending a season in Munich.
