Mercato – From L2 to Bayern: when Sadio Mané’s best friend signs in Munich

From Dunkirk to Bayern Munich, there can only be one step (and a few months). Very close to Sadio Mané who signed in Bavaria this summer, Désiré Ségbé Azankpo has just signed with Bayern Munich for two years. It is evaluated there with the reserve of the Bavarian giant. The anecdote has something to smile about but it includes a beautiful story of friendship. Since their time at Génération Foot in Senegal, Sadio Mané and Désiré Ségbé Azankpo have indeed remained very good friends.

If they discovered Metz together, the Senegalese and the Beninese have nevertheless had very different careers, one spinning towards the heights of international football while the other vegetated in the lower divisions or the second zone championships (Romania, Slovakia…), due in particular to repeated injuries. But they have kept strong ties from their young years at Génération Foot, where they shared everything (room, clothes, etc.) as journalist Saddick Adams reports on Twitter.

In recent weeks, as Bild points out, it is Désiré Ségbé Azankpo who has accompanied the former Liverpool star to Bayern. And after a test obtained thanks in particular to the support of the Senegalese, the Beninese international, who has no longer had a contract since leaving Dunkirk last winter (1 but in 17 L2 matches in 2021-22), a therefore convinced the leaders of the German championship to give him a contract. Bayern also offers itself a luxury reinforcement to allow Sadio Mané to be in the best conditions for a successful integration. And that is priceless.
