- The forward is known for his philanthropy work.
- The 27-year-old never forgot his roots and is constantly trying to improve living conditions in Senegal.
- He's building infrastructure in his hometown and providing the poor with money.
Speaking with nsemwoha.com, Sadio Mane opened up on why he prefers to spend a big part of his earnings on charity in his homeland.
"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.
Stunning both on and off the pitch:
"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."
Nobody's more down-to-earth than Sadio. A top player always stays humble and remembers his roots.
