Sadio Mane: The Liverpool Striker With A Golden Heart (part 2)

In Liverpool, Mane has reached a new level in his career. He created a dangerous trident in attack with Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino, helping the team for two consecutive years in the Champions League final and once champion. In the English Premier League in the 2018-19 season, Mane was the top scorer with Aubameyang and Salah with 22 goals each. The impressive achievement helped Mane to fourth in the European Golden Ball poll and fifth in FIFA’s The Best 2019 list.

By early 2020, Mane was honored with the best player in Africa. Until the ball stopped rolling due to the Covid-19 epidemic, Mane and his teammates were alone on their way to the first Premier League title. All of those achievements came under Klopp. But the German coach must also admit he had a bad impression when he first met that student.

After witnessing Mane’s performance directly against Liverpool, Klopp was completely convinced. Liverpool led Southampton 2-0 at half-time, before Mane came in and scored twice to reverse the situation. In the summer of 2016, Mane docked at Anfield for a fee of £ 34 million.

Contrary to the rapper-like appearance that Klopp described, Mane is not in the real life of a millionaire playing football. In 2018, he went to the mosque in Liverpool a few hours after the victory over Leicester to help clean the toilet. Sadio took the initiative to ask the staff at the cathedral not to send videos of him out, because he didn’t want to make pictures and not someone who wanted to please the fans. Sadio has a Bentley, but usually gets there in a normal car.

Mane’s hometown is where the World Bank estimates that up to 70% of households live in poverty. His father had died because there was no hospital to treat him, while his younger sister had to be born at home. That’s why Mane recently built a hospital in his home town. When Covid-19 broke out across the globe, Mane quickly sent £ 40,000 to the Senegalese government in support of the epidemic.
