  • Jordan Henderson paid glowing tribute to Sadio Mane, admitting the Senegalese international's exit will create a void at Liverpool
  • The 30-year-old won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Club World Cup titles during his six-year spell at the Merseyside club

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has admitted the Reds will miss Sadio Mane.

Mane swapped Liverpool for Bayern Munich this summer, bringing an end to his storied stint with the Merseyside outfit.

During his six trophy-laden seasons with Liverpool, the 30-year-old Senegalese international formed a lethal attacking trident with Roberto Firmino and Egyptian Mohamed Salah.

Following the departure of Mane to the Allianz Arena, Liverpool have moved swiftly to sign Benfica marksman Darwin Nunez, who scored in the Reds' triumph over Man City in the Community Shield last Saturday.

Despite replacing Mane with Nunez, Henderson accepted the loss of Mane is a huge void and the team misses the 30-year-old.

"I think any team in the world would miss Sadio," he told talkSPORT via GOAL. "For me, he’s one of the best players in the world and one of the best characters around the dressing room and around the place.
“He’s a great lad, always smiling and joking around and just really good to have around. Setting standards as well. Big miss for us, but that’s football. Life goes on. I wish him all the best and hope he does well at Bayern."

Sadio Mane explains why he chose to join Bayern Munich

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Sadio Mane is feeling very excited after completing his move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in a deal worth £35.1m.

The 30-year-old forward ends his six-year relationship with Liverpool where he formed a formidable partnership with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firminho in the Reds attack.

Mane has now disclosed he immediately saw himself playing for Bayern Munich immediately his agent told him of the Bavarians’ interest in signing him this summer Daily Mail reports.
