How Sadio Mane once hang out with iPhone 7 with broken screen – even if he can afford 150 new iPhones a week

Sadio Mane's iPhone suddenly became a talking point on social media ahead of Liverpool's Boxing Day game at Leicester. The reason? The phone's screen was so badly broken that you did not even have to zoom in to see it.

This might seem strange to those who only know that Mane is one of the most highly-paid Reds who earns enough to buy around 150 brand new iPhones every week.

However, it's nothing new for the Liverpool fans who know how little Sadio cares for money. Here's how he beautifully explained his approach:

"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."
