Below is the quote attributed to Sadio Mane..

Why would I want ten Ferraris, twenty diamond watches, or two planes? What will these objects do for me and for the world?

I was hungry, and I had to work in the field; I survived hard times, played football barefooted, I did not have an education and many other things, but today with what I win thanks to football, I can help my people.

I built schools, a stadium, we provide clothes, shoes, food for people who are in extreme poverty. In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all people in a very poor region of Senegal which contributes to their family economy.

I do not need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, trips and even planes. I prefer that my people receive a little of what life has given me”. – Sadio Mane
