Mané is "awesome": Hoeneß raves about Salihamidžić's "masterpiece"

Uli Hoeneß likes to get excited. But currently the honorary president of FC Bayern is super happy. Namely, about the transfer of Sadio Mané. For this he praises sports director Hasan Salihamidžić with great words. In general, he likes his heart club very well at the moment.

Uli Hoeneß raves about Sadio Mané from Munich and praises sports director Hasan Salihamidžić for signing the star striker. "When Hasan mentioned the transfer to the board, I said, 'If we get it, you can buy it without our permission.' It's a masterpiece that Hasan did it," said the 70-year-old Honorary President of FC Bayern to "Sport Bild".

"Mané doesn't drink alcohol, his whole life is football. It's a dream for the team and for our public image," he added. The German soccer record champion had signed the 30-year-old Senegalese before this season, and Bayern are reported to be paying up to 41 million euros to Liverpool FC. Mané scored three goals in his first three Bundesliga games.

Already after the 6-1 league start at Eintracht Frankfurt he was allowed to celebrate on the fence with the Ultras. "When I saw the picture of Sadio Mané with the megaphone, I couldn't believe it. I'm curious how my friends from the elite will deal with it, whether they allow the players to be close," said Hoeneß, a member of the supervisory board, for whom Mané " the hammer" is.

Hoeneß also sees Mané's signing as confirmation for sporting director Salihamidžić, whose work is always viewed critically by the public. "I was always behind him one hundred percent, in good times and bad," said Hoeneß. "Everyone on the board has made strong progress over the past few months."

The long-serving president emphasized that in his opinion, the Munich club was a "family club" where things were "human". "It took a while with Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidžić, but now for the first time I have the feeling that the two Bavarians are not a mercenary club where the players only play for the money."
