Sadio Mané is staying at Bayern Munich despite a difficult first season at the club, according to the player's PR manager, Bacary Cissé.
"What's certain is that he stays at Bayern. He signed for 3 years. He spent one year and still has two. So yes, for now he stays at Bayern," Cisse told Senegalese TV channel 2stv (via @iMiaSanMia).
Mané faced a lot of criticism in his first season at Bayern, but Cisse believes the former Liverpool attacker has done better than he's been given credit for.
"I don't think Sadio had a bad season. The season started in August, he got injured in November and was out for 4 months. All in all, he had 12 goals & 6 assists despite not playing for 4 months - that's not nothing.
"He also had 10 goals disallowed by VAR. That in part means that his teammates did not adapt to his game, which was very quick. I think if they had adapted to his game, Sadio would probably have scored 5 more goals. I'm optimistic because I know him well," Cissé said.
