Liverpool striker Sadio Mane has sent 300 shirts to his home village in Senegal for the final of the 2017/18 Champions League where his side will face Real Madrid in Kiev.
The Senegal international is from a town called Bambali, and they will all stay glued to their televisions on Saturday, May 26, to watch their son against the Spanish giants.
Ever since football brought him wealth and fame, the 26-year-old has been sending donations home.
“I bought 300 Liverpool jerseys to send to the people in the village, so the fans can wear to watch the final.
“My family still live in the village and they are all going to be watching. Nobody in the village will work this day.
“I cannot say most of the world is supporting Liverpool because Real Madrid fans will say otherwise.
“Maybe everyone who is not a Real Madrid, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City fan. I think everyone else would like to see Liverpool win. It would be good for football.” Sadio Mane said according to Telegraph UK.
Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are expected to lead Liverpool attack against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Premier League campaigners Liverpool named their squad for the final of the 2017/18 Champions League against Spanish giants Real Madrid.
German midfielder Emre Can who has not played for the Reds since March 17 made the final 24-man list by Jurgen Klopp.
But the former Bayer Leverkusen star is unlikely to make the starting XI and could make his first appearance in over two months off the bench.
