Sadio Mane, against all odds, is becoming a bigger revelation in football despite coming from a local Senegalese community - all thanks to his stellar rise and humility.
Outside the pitch, if anything would be said about the Liverpool forward, apparently it would about his gladsome humbleness which has marked him out as a special breed.
Recently, the 27-year-old star was spotted in a video that has now gone viral helping the bus assistants offload packs of bottled water from the national team bus.
Although there is no empirical validity as regards when the video was shot, Senegal national team seemed to be going for a football match when the incident happened.
And the heart-warming highlight of it was when the Liverpool forward alighted from the bus and helped offload the goods down into the dressing room while his teammates fancifully walked their way off the scene.
The video of the scenario was shared by FutbolBible and has generated over two thousand reactions with fans hailing the Senegalese star for his beautiful gesture.
"One of the classiest players in the game," a football fan named Tiller Smith said.
"Sadio Mane is classy on and off the pitch. You love to see it," another man said.
Mane was part of the silver medal winners for Senegal during AFCON 2019 tournament. Besides he was an integral figure in Liverpool's victorious Champions League journey last season.
He has been tipped as one of the favourites to dethrone Luka Modric at this year's Ballon d'Or's award having been named in the 30-man list for the award.
Recently, former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger heaped praises on the Liverpool forward and tipped him to Ballon d'Or glory ahead of his teammate van Dijk, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has revealed two players he will be supporting to emerge victorious in this year’s Ballon d’Or.
The 30-man shortlist for the 2019 Ballon d'Or 2019 was unveiled on Monday, October 21, by France Football and the winner will be made public on December 2.
