Liverpool defender Andy Roberson recently criticized Sadio Mane for often forgetting his passport while playing in the UEFA Champions League and this caused Liverpool to suffer very heavy losses.
Former Liverpool striker Sadio Mane was accused by his former Liverpool team-mate Andy Roberson as a “big culprit” for forgetting his passport during Liverpool’s trips to the UEFA Champions League arena.
Mane left Anfield in the summer, joining Bayern Munich after six years at the Merseyside side. During that time, the 30-year-old has scored 120 goals in 269 games, winning the Premier League and Champions League, among other trophies.
Although Liverpool and many other teams will use private planes instead of commercial ones, forgetting a passport can still lead to delays in the journey. Robertson recently voiced “denounce” Mane may have committed many times that caused the whole team to be punished.
Sharing with the Mirror, Andy Robertson said: “Forgetting your passport will be extremely fine. If you forget your passport on a long trip, you will have a lot of wages deducted. That happened a few times. Once, Sadio Mane was the main culprit for that and it was clear that he delayed the plane and made us late. The whole team got fined a lot of money just because of his forgetfulness.”
Since Mane left Anfield, Jurgen Klopp’s ᴍᴇɴ have struggled in the Premier League. Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota were expected to fill the void left by the Bayern player, but both suffered injuries at some point of the season, forcing the “Red Devils of Merseyside” to rush into the transfer market. concession to recruit Cody Gakpo.
Mane has scored 11 goals in his first 23 games for Bayern, helping reigning champions Julian Nagelsmann return to the top of the Bundesliga after a slow start. However, he has been out of action since November, missing the World Cup due to an injury in a 6-1 win over Werder Breᴍᴇɴ.
Liverpool and Bayern will both return to Europe in February, and both face tough matches. Klopp’s ᴍᴇɴ have a rematch in the 2022 final against Real Madrid after placing second behind Napoli in their group. While Bayern – despite placing above Inter Milan, Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen – will face Paris Saint-Germain in the rematch of the 2020 Champions League final.
