this season but also lost the impact of Dortmund’s Erling Haaland as he completed a switch to Manchester City. However, RB Leipzig's defender believes

Sadio Mane

offers a real threat to Bayern's opponents.

Orban told



“There are quite a few. Lewandowski and Haaland have been formative strikers in recent years, it was never easy to defend against them, they are simply two exceptional players!

"This year they are no longer there and I thought I'll be a bit bored this season until Sadio Mane was signed.

"Seriously, there are already a lot of good guys in the league and with Mane a real rocket is coming our way and mine."

Dortmund and Bayern have strengthened themselves very well on the transfer market. It is important for us to continue to improve. That is primarily about consistency and we have to show that in every game,"

"Whether it's Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen or hopefully us, who stay up there for a long time, is of secondary importance."
