Saunders said on talkSPORT: “Nothing against the club, it’s a great club, but the league is nowhere near a challenge for Mane.

“He’ll get goals. They win 5-0 every week, only one team can win the league.

“It’s not a challenge. He will get in his armchair, light a cigar up, he’ll play for Bayern in third gear and he’ll coast for two years and ruin the best two years of his life as a footballer.

“At the end of his career, if he said to you ‘come and look at my trophy cabinet’, the German league winners medal will be right at the back.”
