Sadio Mané is one player who has so much but yet make little noise about it. A humble player both in and out of the pitch, his humanitarian nature is second to none. A true hero of his people and humanity with genuine love in his heart.
Mané was awarded with an award in the just concluded Ballon D’or awards, a special recognition award and he’s the first-ever recipient of the award, ‘The Socrates Award’.
This award commemorates the achievements off the field from someone who gives back to society and their community in a major way.
Mané has built hospitals and schools in his home country, Senegal. He has put funding behind the building of a petrol station and 4G fibre optic cables. He gives each family in his village, Bambali €70 a month.
Mané finished second behind Karim Benzema for the Ballon d’Or which we have not heard as much noise about as that of the winner, of course yes. But one thing is certain, Mané is loved by many and the good people of Africa and Senegal.
