Senegalese footballer Sadio Mané, who plays for Premier League side Liverpool, has been named as the 2019/20 PFA Fans' Player of the Season in what is an incredible record.
Mané won the hearts of the fans last season in the Premier League because of his superb performances for the Reds who won the English topflight title.
During his campaign for Liverpool last season in the Premier League, Mané scored 18 goals and provided seven assists for Jürgen Klopp's side.
Some of the goals Mané netted last term for Liverpool were vital, most importantly late winners against Aston Villa, Norwich and West Ham United.

Mané was one of the names in the frame for the Players' Player of the Year award as well, alongside two Liverpool teammates Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
But these three players were beaten by Manchester City star, Kevin De Bruyne, who recorded the highest number of assists last term in the Premier League.
Mané joined Liverpool from Southampton three years ago, and the striker has proven himself at Anfield in the last three seasons.
"I remember this unbelievably talented boy we took from Southampton. He was really outstanding skill-wise, but had a little lack of consistency,'' Klopp explained.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Liverpool recorded another success after winning the 2019/20 Premier League title as the Reds are now occupying fourth on the table of the world's most valuable rankings.
The Reds waited for 30 years before Klopp gave the Anfield fans the Premier League title dethroning Manchester City.
According to the latest edition of the brand finance football annual, Liverpool's value has risen by six per cent to £1.143 billion thanks to their Premier League title win.
But despite their success winning the Premier League title, Liverpool are behind rivals Manchester United who are occupying third position.
The Old Trafford landlords have a £143m fall, while Liverpool recorded a £64.3m rise in their value.
Even though they won the Spanish La Liga title for the 2019/20 season, Real Madrid are still maintaining the top spot with a £205m fall.
