Mane urged to leave Liverpool

Liverpool star Sadio Mane has been asked to leave Liverpool to move to Real Madrid or Barcelona in the near future by the founder of General Foot Academy founder Mady Toure. The Senegal star has earned a lot of plaudits for his strong performances in 2019, with many comparing him to Lionel Messi as one of the best players in the world.


Mane, who trained in the academy as a teenager, has been urged to move to Madrid or Barca by Toure in order to take the next step and become the best player in the world. He said.

“The fact Sadio has won the African Ballon d’Or will spur him on to win the European one too. That’s his objective. Sadio always told me he would become one of the best players in the world.”
“He said that to me and now he is among them but he has to leave Liverpool now. It’s his last year and he has to leave Liverpool when it’s up to go to Barcelona or Real Madrid.”
