Star purchase Sadio Mane gets this shirt number

Sadio Mane will wear jersey number 17 for Bayern Munich next season. This was announced by the German record champions on Sunday. Mane was introduced a few days ago as a new signing from Liverpool FC.

“I want to celebrate a lot of success with my team and this number,” said Mane on the Munich website.

Jerome Boateng, who moved to Lyon last summer, wore the 17 at FC Bayern. No Bayern player chose this number in the past season.

Well-known former Munich players with the 17, which was only awarded for the sixth time, are Mark van Bommel and Christian Ziege.

“Now I’m really looking forward to being able to start preparing for the season with my new teammates soon,” said Mane.
