Sadio Mane, Ex-Liverpool Star, Takes Hands-On Approach in Building School in Senegal Hometown

LIVERPOOL star Sadio Mane has been spotted visiting the construction site of a school he’s building in his hometown village in Senegal.

The Reds ace, 27, is funding the new school to the tune of £250,000 – having already paid for a hospital in the village.

Despite only just finished his 2018-19 season, thanks to Afcon duties, Mane is still not one for a holiday.

Instead, the former Southampton forward returned to Bambali, Senegal, to check on his school’s progress.

As well as the school and hospital, reports also claim Mane pays money every month to families in the village to help them get by.

The report suggests Mane hands out 50,000 CFA Francs – around £70 – as well as giving out free football kits to the local kids.

The heart-warming gesture has captured the attention of fans on Twitter, who praised Mane’s generosity.

REMEMBER YOUR ROOTS

One social media user wrote: “Great to see footballers doing great things off the pitch and thinking of others rather than being self-centred.”

Another said: “Being humble, remembering your roots costs nothing, you die with with your money or fancy things you buy, but you can change lives easy!”

A third simply added: “Absolutely love the man.”

Mane will report back to Melwood for Liverpool training today – along with fellow superstars Roberto Firmino, Alisson and Mohamed Salah.

The quartet have been on either Afcon or Copa America duties this summer and have been given time off by Jurgen Klopp to recover.

 

However, they have missed the entirety of Liverpool’s worryingly sub-par pre-season.

On Sunday, the Reds were thumped -0 by Napoli in Scotland, having already been beaten by Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla in the US.

Liverpool have only recorded wins over Tranmere and Bradford this pre-season, also playing out a 2-2 draw against Sporting Lisbon.
