Coach Julian Nagelsmann from record champion Bayern Munich praised star access Sadio Mané after his competitive debut including a goal in the highest tones.

    Mané is “simply a humble, down-to-earth and outstanding player who defends very well, works hard and pushes the boys in the locker room,” said Nagelsmann after the 5-3 (3-0) victory in the Supercup on Saturday DFB Cup winner RB Leipzig.

    Nagelsmann had appointed Maée, who had come from Liverpool, as the only newcomer to the starting XI. The Senegalese thanked the coach with the goal to make it 2-0 (31st).

    “He’s doing us extremely well. He scored two nice goals, which unfortunately were both offside,” said Nagelsmann: “He has outstanding quality and is an outstanding guy.”

    Meanwhile, Nagelsmann also highlighted the performance of national player Jamal Musiala, who shone with a goal (14th) and an assist. “You can emphasize Jamal, incredibly good,” said Nagelsmann on “Sat.1” about the 19-year-old, who was substituted after 60 minutes: “Unfortunately we have to get him down. That was world class, I think.”
