Sadio Mane has opened up on why he decided to take the No.17 shirt at Bayern Munich following his transfer from Liverpool last week.

When asked about why he chose the No.17 shirt, Mane explained it was simply the best of those available as he told the Bayern website: "I picked out 17 from the free jersey numbers at FC Bayern and aim to celebrate many successes with my team and this number.

"Sadio Mane is a global star, who underlines the appeal of FC Bayern and will increase the attractiveness of the Bundesliga as a whole," said Bayern president Herbert Hainer.

It's great that our board led by Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic have managed to sign a player like Sadio Mane for FC Bayern."

The Senegal international completed the £35million switch to the Allianz Arena after six successful years with the Reds, where he won four major trophies including the Premier League and the Champions League.

"I'm really happy to finally be at FC Bayern in Munich," Mane added.
