The Senegalese national player Sadio Mane has helped his best and childhood friend, Désiré Segbé to get a contract at Bayern.

Sadio Mane joining Bayern is the talk of town but several reports in Munich indicate that Desire Segbe Azankpo has also joined Bayern Reserve team on a two year contract.

The two players met at the Generation Foot Academy in Senegal. Désiré Segbé was brought in from Benin, the same time Sadio was brought to the academy. The two became friends and shared the same room.


Sadio Mane moved to Europe to sign with Metz. When he settled at Metz, he told the club about his friend, Segbe. When Segbe arrived in France, he and Mane shared the same apartment and shared the same room when on the team’s camp.

They finally separated when Mane moved to Red Bull Salzburg in Austria in 2012. They separated but remained in closed contact.

In 2019, they reunited in England where Mane was playing for Liverpool. Désiré Segbé got signed by Oldham Athletics which is 45 minutes away from Liverpool. When he arrived, Mane called him over to stay at his house.

Désiré Segbé was with Mane during his arrival in Germany and his signing with Bayern Munich.

When Sadio Mane signed for Bayern, he asked the club to invite his friend for trial.

Désiré Segbé gave the trail and got signed by the club. He’ll play for Bayern II in the German fourth tier.

Sadio Mane is just an amazing person.
