Erstwhile Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has thrown his weight behind Liverpool FC forward Sadio Mane going into the 2019 Ballon d’Or awards.
Arsene Wenger believes if there is any justice in this world, then the EPL’s joint top goal scorer last season must be the one awarded the coveted Ballon d’Or award.
“Mane was the outstanding character, I would say – because he is a fighter… and efficient. He’s not scared of anybody. At the moment, he deserves huge credit,” the Frenchman told beIN Sports.

Sadio Mane helped his Liverpool side win the Champions league last season and has already improved his stellar stats of last season in the current one as Liverpool lead the pack in the EPL race.
We wish Sadio Mane all the best.
