Sadio Mane is one of the superstars on the Liverpool team. His presence and exploits have seen him by Jurgen Klopp’s side at the top of the Premier League table and they are on course to break their 30-year title jinx. Mane earns approximately 10.2 million dollars annually and is one of the top footballers in the world. However, recently, there was one photo uploaded by Mane which broke the hearts of many fans. In the photo, some spotted Mane carrying a cracked iPhone 11. Many fans were flummoxed as to why Mane is not buying a new iPhone. Some joked that he can at least buy a new screenguard. However, it is now revealed why Mane is carrying the cracked iPhone. His response is now winning the internet and it has given many fans a taste of how humble and modest the Senegalese forward is.

In an interview with TeleDakar in October 2019, Mane had outlined that his major goal after becoming one of the top players was to help people. “Why would I want ten Ferraris, 20 diamond watches and two jet planes? What would that do for the world? I starved, I worked in the fields, I played barefoot, and I didn’t go to school. Now I can help people. I prefer to build schools and give poor people food or clothing. I have built schools [and] a stadium; we provide clothes, shoes, and food for people in extreme poverty. In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all people from a very poor Senegalese region in order to contribute 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,” Mane said.

In the same interview, Mane revealed that the iPhone 11 is a gift from his dear friend Gini Wijnaldum, a Dutch football player. Although Mane is more than capable of buying a new Iphone, he chose to honour friendship.
