Sadio Mane has named which club he really supports after recently getting in trouble with the Liverpool fans.
The Senegalese winger is expected to leave Anfield this summer after six years on Merseyside and has been fuelling the rumours of an exit himself. Mane recently claimed that as many as 70% of people in Senegal wanted him to leave Liverpool and that he would do what they want.
Now, Mane has been quoted by LFC Transfer Room on Twitter revealing the club he really supports, after being asked whether it is "Bayern Munich, Barcelona or Real Madrid?" by a reporter.
Mane is said to have responded by answering with: “They are all not bad. You’ve got me in trouble with the Liverpool fans at the moment, but hey… My club? I am for Marseille.”
It is not the first time Mane has spoken of his support for Marseille, either, having been asked to join the club back in February by international team-mate Pape Gueye.
Speaking after winning Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal, Mane joked, via The Mirror: "Marseille, make an effort, put in the money and I’ll come! You have to pay the transfer and I’ll come!"
The 30-year-old forward has been increasingly linked with a transfer this summer as he enters into the final year of his Liverpool contract and with a new deal yet to be agreed.

German champions Bayern Munich understood to be the frontrunners to sign Mane with the club reportedly having already agreed a three-year deal with the former Southampton man.
Mane fuelled talk of an exit ahead of Senegal's clash with Benin, explaining in a press conference that 60-70% of people in Senegal want him to leave Liverpool.
"Like everyone else, I'm on social media and I see the comments," explained Mane. "Isn't it between 60 to 70% of Senegalese want me to leave Liverpool? I will do what they want. We will see soon! Don't be in a hurry because we will see this together. The future will tell us."
He went on to score a hat-trick as Senegal beat 10-man Benin 3-1 on Saturday in their latest qualifier for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in the Ivory Coast.
