May 25th 2018

Three hundred Liverpool shirts have been sent by Sadio Mane to his hometown Senegalese village of Bambali ahead of the Champions League final.

Mane fondly remembers watching the 2005 final in Bambali as a 13-year-old, and he will be making sure his village will be getting decked out in red and behind Liverpool ahead of the biggest game of his career.

“I remember AC Milan v Liverpool in 2005,” Mané explains. “Three-nil down, then 3-3 and penalties. This was a big memory for me. I was watching in my village, Bambali. I remember being with my friend, a big friend of mine, and at 3-0 down he was completely out of it. He stopped watching and ran like crazy to get away. Then he came back at the end and he could not believe it. Even to this day he cannot believe it. He came back after the game when Liverpool had won.”

“I bought 300 Liverpool jerseys to send to the people in the village so the fans can wear them to watch the final. I will be going back in the summer after the World Cup and hopefully I will be showing everyone a winner’s medal.”
