Sadio Mane watched Liverpool's Community Shield win - journalist

Journalist Christian Falk has claimed on Twitter that Sadio Mane watched as much of Liverpool’s Community Shield win on Saturday as possible before helping Bayern Munich win the German Super Cup.

The Reds claimed the first silverware of the season on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Manchester City 3-1 at the King Power Stadium to make a statement ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

In previous years, the Community Shield has probably been looked at as something of a glorified pre-season friendly. However, it was absolutely clear just how much each side wanted to win in Leicester.

And the icing on the cake came for the Reds when Darwin Nunez made the victory safe late on. The striker joined Mo Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold in getting on the scoresheet for Liverpool.

It certainly appears that the Reds have the means to bounce back from losing Mane to Bayern.

The Senegalese actually made a goalscoring start of his own on Saturday. Mane found the back of the net as the Bavarian giants beat RB Leipzig 5-3 in a Super Cup thriller.

But it seems that Mane was very keen to see how his old side were faring before the game. Falk has disclosed on Twitter that the forward watched as much of Liverpool’s clash as possible…

Mane certainly left Merseyside a club legend. In total, he scored 120 goals in 269 games. And he helped Klopp’s men win virtually every major honour available to them, including the Premier League and the Champions League.

It seems that he will be hoping that they prove just as successful now that he has moved on.
