      Klopp's comments - incredible!

      I don't think there has ever been a player who has come and gone in my lifetime supporting Liverpool (born 1990) where the achievements have felt so total, so complete. With not a hint of regret. That's the reality with Sadio and will be for many others from this great squad who exit the door in the coming seasons.

      It's so much easier letting go of someone when they've done it all.

      Great tribute from Klopp, and well deserved. Good to see Sadio leaving without any bad feeling from the manager.

      Been so influential in bringing us back to the top, never injured, always put in 100%, scores big goals and generally seemed to always push himself to be better. Out of all his goals, his one against Bayern away in the champions league always stands out for me, made Nueur look a fool and was so composed.

      As Jürgen says, one of the greats and probably the first player of this era to leave where we know we are losing a legend and it’s going to happen more often over the coming years as we transition to a younger team.

      Still not sinking in he’s actually gone. Incredibly human being, and amazing talent. Wish him all the best. Can’t wait for his testimonial.

      Fantastic player for us but can’t say I’m gutted about him leaving. If I’m honest, his interviews about his future in the build up to the CL final has left a bit of a sour taste for me.

      Bayern will never get the level of performances out of him that we got, we 100% got the best out of him.

      Not really sure why he’s gone there, there is no competition in Germany, just seems like the easy option to get more money and a couple of easy medals. Taken a step down.

      Best of luck to him.

      The lad owes LFC nothing.
      Jürgen Klopp , the best manager in the world got the best years out of him.
      Good luck Sadio for the future.

      I think 30 years old, is the new 25 these days with all the strict fitness and nutrition regimes that players follow to the letter.

      Basically I'm trying to argue that the old days when passing the 30 mark meant you were on your last legs as a player are history. Ibrahimovic is still scoring goals in his 40's. Many others are 35+, and still well up to playing at the highest level.

      Mane mainly left imo because Diaz turned up and took his spot in the front line overnight. I don't buy any of this "new challenge" nonsense. That's what Clemence cited as the reason why he left us for Spurs. All he got there was a FA Cup and a UEFA Cup. Mane is just another "sort my future at the end of the season" case who got up and left. Bayern pay well obviously but other clubs pay more, and I don't think any player thinks Nagelsmann is an upgrade on Klopp, so this is a very strange move imo. From a sporting perspective, you can win the lot here, so there is no need whatsoever to go anywhere else.

      Diaz was Mane's replacement :lmao:

      Keep saying it, Diaz was supposed to have been bought this summer, but due to interest from Spurs we moved the deal forward to make sure we bought the player. Diaz had absolutely f**k all to do with Mane leaving!!

      Yea Sadio was probably always going to leave this summer when you think back.

      Diaz was brought in early as Spurs really went for him as you say.

      What a player, worked his ass off, battled hard, scored goals, assisted, closed down. Big loss.
      But can only with him all the very best, deserves one more proper big challenge in his career.
      Can't ignore the fact that he'll also be earning a fair bit more salary wise, but don't begrudge him that.
      Good luck Sadio !! :)

      I'm well aware why we bought him when we did. But Diaz has only played in one position since he arrived, the one Mane had, so instead of accepting his new role upfront, he just abandoned ship as soon as he could. I don't believe any of that new challenge nonsense. There's far more challenges here to face, than at Bayern Munich.

      Part of me could be persuaded to believe that Sadio tired of being in Mo’s shadow. Going to Bayern gives him a chance to be the marquee player (unless of course they don’t offload Lewa.

      *Bayern
      I simply think that it was clear for Sadio that he would not be the biggest fish here and Bayern was willing to buy him and give him a superstar salary he deserves. Everyone was happy.

      I think, here, we're at the end of a cycle. Firmino, Salah and Mane have been around together for five to seven years. It's already a lot. We need to accept that things are changing. I'm happy that Salah is staying but unless he simply improves again (unlikely but possible), we will build the team around other players and rightly so.
