Sadio Mane seems to be in his best form since his arrival in his new club Bayern Munich after his exit from Liverpool Fc he has since put in much more effort to be able to maintain his playing skills he exhibited in his former club.
Below is his interview speech after he went on to score his first ever goals in his new club.
Reaction after Sadio Mane scored two more goals as Bayern Munich avenged a rare defeat last season by routing Bochum 7-0 again in the Bundesliga on Sunday.
Mane took his tally to three goals in as many games since switching from Liverpool in the offseason.
Bochum didn’t have to contend with the Senegal star last season as Thomas Reis’ team stunned Bayern with a 4-2 win at home in February.
Q: How would you sum up the 7-0 victory?
“What a game, what a game. To be honest, the whole performance of the team was great today. We start well in the game, we create many chances, and we score seven goals – what a game, I have to say. Really happy and proud of the boys.”
Q: You scored a penalty too. Is this something new for you considering you never scored one in the Premier League?
“Yeah, I think everything feels new. I came to a new league, today the penalty. So I’m really happy and hopefully I am going to score more penalties for the team.”
Q: How do you assess Bayern’s best ever start to a Bundesliga season?
“To be honest, it’s just unbelievable. But it’s not a surprise for me. The way we train – it’s a high, high, high level. The training, the intensity we put into training – everything we do with intensity. I think it pays off because we work that hard in training. So I think we have a very good coach and the ideas he has are just incredible so it’s very difficult for the other team to cope with us.”
Q: Talk us through your emotions?
“Yeah, obviously amazing to score the first goal in your first appearance in the starting eleven. Also to keep the zero – I think it’s a perfect game. To win 7-0 – it’s a perfect game.”
Q: What did you think of Mané’s performance?
“Yeah, also Sadio is so important. Before the game I said it, we need the best attitude because in games like today, when you play in Bochum, it’s one of the favourite games for the fans in Bochum. So you need a good start into the game. And especially for key players like Sadio, we need his attitude, his best attitude. And today he showed he’s a world class player, he can score goals and he can help the players with his attitude so I’m happy with his performance as well.”
