Sadio Mane surprises Liverpool with new statements .. "I was joking"

Senegalese star Sadio Mane retracted his recent statements that sparked controversy among Liverpool fans, stressing that he was "joking".

A few days ago, at a press conference for the Senegalese team, Mane asked Mane the desire of the "Senegalese public" for him to leave Liverpool and move to another club, so his response came as a surprise.

After a question about his football future, Sadio Mane said: "60 to 70 percent of the Senegalese want me to leave Liverpool. I will do what they want (to leave Liverpool). We will see soon."

His statements sparked a great controversy among Liverpool fans, and they considered it the clearest indication of Mane's departure from the "Reds", especially with the spread of news indicating the player's desire to move.

But Mane retracted his last statements, Saturday evening, after the many news that had emerged about his "desire to leave in response to the demands of the Senegalese."

Mane said: "Yesterday I joked with some humor and the news spread everywhere."

He added: "Liverpool is a team that I respect a lot. The fans embraced me from day one. As for my future with the team, we will see later what happens."
