The manager of Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann, has acknowledged that Sadio Mane still needs time to "adapt" to his group.
Nagelsmann made this statement following Mane's inability to significantly impact Bayern Munich's 2-0 Champions League victory over Barcelona on Tuesday.
Bayern Munich defeated Barcelona with two goals from Lucas Hernandez and one each from Leroy Sane and Mane. Mane had no shots on goal and was replaced after 70 minutes.
Nagelsmann, when questioned about Mane following the game, responded, "He's a new signing. All he has to do is adjust. He was trying. I’m certain he will succeed for us. "
"I will say everything I need to say about Sadio to him and not in the media," he continued.
“He played a new position today, which of course he didn’t play so much last year at Liverpool, but the years before that."
“It’s quite normal as a newcomer who, of course, still has to adapt to certain procedures that are a bit different to those at Liverpool."
“I already said during the week that I would like him to do certain things more.
“Maybe less looking for the ball or team-mates and trying to be a bit more self-confident, but we are very happy that we have him and he will put his stamp on our game.”
