After a six-year stay at Merseyside, Mane left Liverpool to join Bayern Munich , the decision by the  Anfield club to agree a £35m deal with the Bundesliga giants for the Senegal international, who had one year left on his contract.

Before the 29-year-old's exit, Jurgen Klopp moved to bring Darwin Nunez from Benfica in a transfer that could reach a club record fee of £85m. But despite effectively replacing Mane, former Arsenal star and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson is concerned.

Asked how Mane's exit will affect the Reds, Merson said: "Massive miss, massive! "I worry for Liverpool because they’ve got an unbelievable manager, but people forget Mane was a big game player.

"Big game player who scored big goals in football matches. It wasn’t the third, fourth, fifth in a 5-0 win, it was the winning goal, the goal that took the lead or the equaliser - they’re the goals I look out for.

"I don’t look for [if] he got a hat-trick but got the fourth, fifth, and sixth in a 7-1 win - for me they’re nothing goals. He got big football goals and this lad Nunez has got to hit the ground running like (Luis) Diaz and this doesn’t happen in the Premier League."
