Senegalese forward Sadio Mane has charged his new teammates at Al Nassr to challenge for all trophies available following his move to the Saudi Pro League.
The 31-year-old signed a four-year deal to join Al Nassr from German giants Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.
Mane travelled to Saudi on Tuesday to complete his move before meeting his new teammates on Wednesday.
During his introduction, Mane urged his teammates including Cristiano Ronaldo to be ready to compete for all titles, as spotted in a video shared on social media.
“I am really happy to be part of you guys and really excited to start with you guys. And of course our target is to win everything and I am sure everybody is ready for it. What a team. Lets stick together and we will be successful,” he said.
Al Nassr lost the Saudi Pro League to Al Ittihad last season and will be hoping to secure the title ahead of the new campaign, after the signings of Sekou Fofana, Marcelo Brozorvic and Mane.
The former Liverpool star will first have to help his teammates win the Arab Club Champions Cup. Mane could make his debut on Thursday against African giants Zamalek, as reported by GOAL.
Mane joins Al Nassr
Earlier, Sports Brief reported that After days of speculation, Sadio Mane has completed his move to Saudi Arabia side Al-Nassr from Bayern Munich.
Mane’s exit from Bayern was on the cards earlier this summer after manager Thomas Tuchel publically questioned his performances.
The 31-year-old spent just one season in Germany, and his altercation with Leroy Sane and injuries hampered his season. He leaves Bayern with a Bundesliga title.
African stars move to Saudi
The Saudi Pro League has been the new craze this summer, with over 15 top players dumping the top European leagues to move to the Middle East.
Cristiano Ronaldo sparked a chain reaction when he signed for Al-Nassr in January and since then several other big-name players, including the reigning Ballon d’Or holder, Karim Benzema, have joined him.
Manchester City’s head coach, Pep Guardiola, has sounded a warning that deals on offer for the players in the oil-rich country might just be a little bit difficult to compete with.
