Mane initially wore No. 19, joining Liverpool from Southampton in 2016, and has worn No. 10 for the past four years. Additionally, he carried ten people for the Saints and for three years when playing for Red Bull Salzburg in Austria.
The Previous Squad Numbers
Sadio Mane has decided on a new jersey number for Bayern Munich, and it’s not quite a conventional choice. The former Liverpool FC striker will wear the #17 starting in the following season, it has been revealed.
Mane’s name and the number 17 are displayed on jerseys that can be purchased through the club’s official shops. The press statement is as brief as they come, so you can tell that he just picked anything at random.
Really, they were at a loss for words in response to this news. Bayern would probably want to forget the last member of the team to don the #17.
This is a sharp contrast to the #10 that Mane often dons for Liverpool and the Senegalese National Team, but the switch was essential because Leroy Sane already wears that number for Bayern Munich.
Sane’s father had promised earlier in the week that if necessary, his son would hand up the kit number, but that didn’t happen. Mane would have been following in the footsteps of Arjen Robben, another legendary winger who wore the shirt for Bayern Munich, had he chosen the #10.
His senior career started in France with Metz, where he initially wore the No. 33 and No. 21 jerseys before transferring. Following the departure of French midfielder Michael Cuisance to Venezia, the No. 17 jersey was available at Bayern.
Prior to it, World Cup champion Jerome Boateng occupied that spot for over eleven years, inheriting it from former Netherlands international midfielder Mark van Bommel.
After six fruitful years at Anfield, where he scored 120 goals and won the Champions League and Premier League, he has now signed a contract in Germany that runs until 2025 and is prepared to begin an exhilarating new chapter in his career.
This also puts an end to rumors that Mane may get the #7 or #9 jersey if Serge Gnabry or Robert Lewandowski left this summer. That doesn’t necessarily imply that either player will stay, though. The market is open, and they will act based on Mane’s selections for kit numbers.
Furthermore, ‘Liverpool’s number one fan forever’ – Mane promises eternal love despite €41m Bayern Munich transfer.
After completing his transfer to Bayern Munich this week, Sadio Mane declared himself to be the club’s “number one fan forever.” Mane, one of the club’s most well-known foreign acquisitions, departs from Anfield, but the Senegal international maintains that the Reds will always hold a special place in his heart and that he would continue to support them even after he is gone.
Mane also praised fellow forwards Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, with whom he helped propel Liverpool to significant domestic and international success, including Premier League, Champions League, and Club World Cup victories, and said the Reds would continue to succeed even without him.
