They say he’s the coolest dude in football…… he’s down to earth, he doesn’t see why he should own a fleet of luxurious vehicles when he can use such money to empower his people, he uses an iPhone with a cracked screen protector….he’s none other than Sadio Mane!
And yeah, Mane’s contributions in football was duly recognized last night when he fought off competition from Riyad Mahrez and ‘clubpatriot’, Mohammed Salah to emerge as the African Footballer of the Year, 2019.
More importantly, the love story between the people of Bambaly and their beloved son, Mane also reached another level.
In a photo, the people of Bambaly, Senegal could be seen seated as they watched their beloved son being crowned the Best Footballer in Africa.
Well, not only has Mane built schools and hospitals for them, he has also gone the extra mile to ensure that he sends each family £70 monthly for their upkeep.
So there you go, if you wonna be a man, be like Mane!
