Transfer Window: Mane Not Joining Manchester United
Lious Van Gaal was denied the chance at signing Sadio Mane in the last transfer window and now rumours have sprouted that he could be on the move this month.
But Koeman is certain Mane is happy at Southampton and will not be leaving.
“Mane is not in a different situation than last week. He’s a Southampton player, he likes to play for Southampton, he’s not for sale,” Koeman said on Thursday.
“Of course I punished him because you have rules in the team, and it was a big mistake. He made his excuse to everybody and that’s not behind us. The rest is internal discussions about how to handle these situations.
“He will start on Saturday, no problem.”
