Selfless Liverpool star Sadio Mane gives back to Senegal - Sports Leo

Despite his best efforts to keep his community work secret, Liverpool and Senegal football star Sadio Mane’s charitable deeds have been revealed.

The 27-year-old who is part of a formidable strike force at English Premier League side Liverpool  – who currently lead the log standings by eight points – has consistently given back to his community in Banbali, Senegal.

In a 2018 interview with The Telegraph, he said he was building a school in Banbali.

When the details of the project came up in the interview, the following transpired:

“Please do not put that in the interview,” Mane said.

“But why? It sends a positive message,” was the response.

“No, no. I do not do this for publicity,” he said.

“The best thing you can do is remember your home town,” he said. “They need help and if I can, I do.”

According to NsemWoha.com Mane has:

Spent $300 000 (R4.3m) on the construction of a high school in Banbali, funded a stadium and a hospital construction project, gave each family in his village 50 000 West African Francs (R1230) and sent 300 Liverpool jerseys to young soccer players in his community.
