Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel urges Sadio Mane to 'keep head up'
Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel has told forward Sadio Mane to 'keep his head up' after an underwhelming beginning to his Bayern Munich career.
Mane joined Bayern at the beginning of the season during which time the Senegal Africa Cup of Nations winner has made 22 appearances and scored seven goals. However, the 31-year-old has failed to hold down a starting position and was involved in a much publicised bust-up with teammate Leroy Sane. Despite all this Tuchel is advising the former Liverpool great to keep in a positive frame of mind. The Bayern boss reasoned that most of the play was down the right-hand side, with Mane thus isolated on the left as well as being starved on ball. "Sadio started as a left forward, which I think is his best position from his time at Liverpool. Our game today was more focused on the right because the linkup between Nous (Mazraoui), King (Coman), and Serge (Gnabry) was better than left between João (Cancelo), Jamal (Musiala), and Sadio. João was often isolated," Tuchel said. "The situation is as it is. (Mané) has to keep his head up and keep working. The guy scored countless goals in the toughest league in the world."
