He was quoted by The Mail: “I wanted him when I was the manager at Man Utd. I chased him at the time. I am a fan of Mane. He can break open a match and I would say Senegal will really miss him.”

Mane ended up joining Liverpool, where he went onto haunt United, before finally leaving Anfield this summer to join Bayern Munich.
