Mane explains Ballon d'Or gala absence and sets target for 2020
Sadio Mane has explained his absence from the Ballon d'Or ceremony - and promised to be in the running next year.
"Hi, everyone! It's Sadio Mane. I'd love to be with you but unfortunately, my calendar doesn't allow me to, I have a game on Wednesday. I salute the winner, see you next year, maybe [for me] to lift the Ballon d'Or."
