Rio Ferdinand has named Sadio Mane as one of the five best African players in Premier League history following his transfer to Bayern Munich.

Who's in your five best African Premier League players?

The 30-year-old has left Liverpool after six seasons with the Reds, scoring 120 goals across 269 appearances and winning six trophies as part of Jurgen Klopp 's famous front three.

"In no particular order; [Didier] Drogba, Salah, Mane, Yaya Toure, [Michael] Essien."

The Nigerian's time at the Reebok Stadium saw tricks, flicks and goals galore, helping the Trotters earn status as Premier League stalwarts until their relegation in 2012 and finishing as runners-up in the 2004 Football League Cup final, losing 2-1 to Middlesbrough in Cardiff.

In a tweet posted after the £35.1 million deal between Bayern and Liverpool was completed on Wednesday, the Manchester United legend named his top five African stars and gave out some honourable mentions.

Since from Barcelona in 2010, the rangy playmaker could truly run a game of football with his skill and athleticism, helping the Citizens win three Premier League titles in his eight years at the Etihad Stadium.
