Players Did Not Want To Pass The Ball To Mane – Wanyama

Montreal Impact midfielder Victor Wanyama has revealed Sadio Mane felt Southampton players did not want to pass to him during their time at the club.

The two African footballers were part of Mauricio Pochettino’s side at St Mary’s Stadium and the Kenyan skipper has revealed how the Senegalese forward approached him for a deal that would have helped him score more goals.

Mane and Wanyama left the Saints in 2016 for Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

“We were like a family under one father [Mauricio] Pochettino but I and Mane forged a bigger brotherhood bond but [Morgan] Schneiderlin was also a great friend,” Wanyama told Madgoat TV.

“At one point, Mane approached me and told me ‘hi man, these guys do not want to pass the ball to me, can the two of us play closely. They do not want me to score.’ I reluctantly agreed and anytime I got the ball I would pass it to him though.

“I wanted to treat him right since he is a good and nice guy.”

Wanyama also spoke about a common difficulty the two went through while serving the Hampshire club.

“There was a time we had a rough time together especially because of suspensions. My suspension came mostly from the hard tackles I applied trying to help the team,” he explained.
