Senegalese forward, Sadio Mane continues to get showered with love on the streets of Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, following his move to Al Nassr.

In a video shared on social media, Mane is seen taking time to attend to the needs of the group, who were also at the mosque for the traditional Jumaa prayer.

The 31-year-old is a devoted Muslim and actively participates in religious activities, wherever he finds himself.

The Al Nassr forward will be making his home debut later on Friday night, when the Knights of Najd welcome Al Taawuon at the Al-Awwal Park, as reported by Sporting News.

Mane, who captained the team in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo in the first game, saw his side lose narrowly to Al-Ettifaq despite scoring in that game.

Ronaldo is expected to return to the squad on Friday as Al Nassr chase their first win of the season.

Mane presented to Al Nassr fans

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Sadio Mane has finally been presented to fans of Al-Nassr following his arrival in Saudi Arabia during the summer transfer window.

The 2021 AFCON winner arrived when the Knights of Najd were involved in the Arab Club Championship Cup, which his new team went on to win.

Following Al-Nassr’s return to Riyadh, Mane was presented to fans at Al-Awwal Park along with fellow new arrivals, Marcelo Brozovic, Seko Fofana, and Alex Telles.

Mane aims dig at Salah

Sadio Mane gave a sarcastic answer to a fan after being asked about his former Liverpool teammate, Mohamed Salah, during Al-Nassr’s Arab Club Champions Cup celebrations.

The former Bayern Munich forward helped the Saudi Arabian side win the competition after beating rivals, Al-Hilal, in the final on Saturday.

Portuguese forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, scored a brace as Al-Nassr came from behind to record a narrow win.
