Sadio Mané's biggest successes to date
FC Bayern have a new title chaser! Sadio Mané is joining the German record champions from Liverpool. The 30-year-old has enjoyed numerous successes at club level in recent years, including winning the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League in 2020. He also led Senegal to glory in the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year. From next season he’ll be on the hunt for titles with FCB. We take a look at the biggest honours from Mané’s career to date.
2014: The first trophies
After moving from Metz to RB Salzburg in summer 2012, Mané celebrated the double in his second season with the Austrian side. He posted 13 goals and 13 assists as Salzburg finished 18 points ahead of second-placed Rapid Vienna, as well as netting five goals in four appearances on the way to the Austrian Cup final. The Senegalese missed the final, which Salzburg won 4-2 against St. Pölten, through suspension.
2019: Champions League triumph
From Salzburg via Southampton, Mané arrived at Liverpool in summer 2016. In his third season with the English giants, the speedy attacker claimed the European crown with a 2-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final. Mané started in all 13 games in the competition, contributing four goals - including a brace in the round of 16 second leg against Bayern - and three assists.
2019: UEFA Super Cup & Club World Cup
Mané enjoyed more success with Liverpool in the 2019 UEFA Super Cup against that year’s Europa League winners Chelsea. The Senegalese star scored both goals for the Reds in a 2-2 draw, before Jürgen Klopp’s men won 5-4 on penalties. Mané and Co then triumphed in the FIFA Club World Cup in December 2019, beating CF Monterrey 2-1 and Flamengo 1-0 after extra time in the final.
2019: African Footballer of the Year
His outstanding achievements in 2019 earned Mané the prestigious title of African Footballer of the Year. Along with the trophies, Mané was the joint top scorer in the Premier League in the 2018/19 campaign with 22 goals (with Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang).
2020: League title with Liverpool
Liverpool and Mané became domestic champions in the 2019/20 season. With 18 goals and seven assists in 35 appearances, the forward played a key role in the Reds’ first Premier League title in 30 years.
2022: AFCON winner with Senegal
Mané’s greatest success at international level came at the Africa Cup of Nations 2021, where Senegal were crowned champions. Mané started every match, scored three goals and set up three. In the final against Egypt, he missed a penalty in normal time but then held his nerve in the shootout to convert his team’s fifth and final spot-kick, completing a 4-2 win and sparking wild celebrations. Mané was also named Player of the Tournament.
