Bayern Munich AXE Sadio Mane's childhood friend just weeks after his own Saudi transfer exit | The Sun

BAYERN MUNICH have confirmed the exit of Sadio Mane’s childhood friend jut a matter of weeks after Mane left for Saudi Arabia.

Mane’s time at Bayern was not what most expected it to be and the club has now completely washed their hands of his impact after they also axed his childhood friend this week.

The former Liverpool star is said to have played a big part in Bayern Munich II signing Desire Segbe Azankpo last July.

But with the Senegalese international no longer at the club, the Bavarians have got rid of his mate too.

According to BILD, Segbe and the German giants have mutually agreed to terminate his contract.

And the 30-year-old has already found himself a new club joining Belgian second division side RFC Seraing.

Segbe has had a strange career moving around different leagues in different countries and even spent a season at Oldham Athletic.

The Benin international made 36 appearances for the Latics scoring six goals and registering one assist.

But it’s fair to say he wasn’t thought of too highly by Oldham fans as he was once labelled as “one of Oldham’s worst strikers in memory.”

Bayern representative Halil Altintop spoke about Segbe’s exit from the club this summer, he said: “Desire approached us with the request to terminate his contract for personal reasons. After a few discussions, we fulfilled his wish at short notice.

“We got to know Desire as an exemplary professional who helped our young team on and off the pitch. We wish him all the best for his future in Belgium, both on a sporting and personal level.”

Segbe has an impressive campaign for Bayern Munich II last season bagging 12 time in just 28 appearances.

Bayern fans were impressed with Segbe’s time with the club and took to social media to praise him.

One wrote: “Desire Segbe came to Munich together and because of Sadio Mane. But only one of them left good impressions, which is Segbe.”

Mane also left Bayern this summer after he made the switch to the Middle East to join Saudi Pro League outfit Al-Nassr.

The pair are good friends from childhood and have both pursued their dreams of becoming professional footballers.
