Sadio Mané is famous for his humility. With a salary of over $ 150,000 a week, the Senegalese can afford 150 new high-end mobile phones each week. But he knows how to distinguish between useful and pleasant.
Before their match against Leicester City last Thursday, Sadio Mané was caught in the locker room corridors with a broken screen phone.
The photo of Sadio Mane with his phone that went viral on social networks aroused the admiration of his fans.

“Look at Sadio Mane despite the huge salary he earns every week, he doesn’t care about the appearance of his phone but here people who don’t even work want all the new iPhones on the market. The goal is not to appear rich, but to be rich in silence, ” commented a fan.
“It’s the difference between what you need and what you want!” “ , Agreed another.
“People are always going to get what they want, not what they need. Be humble, ” wrote another.
The 27-year-old star had previously told how his childhood, marked by poverty, helped him better understand wealth and how he wants to use it.
“Why would I want ten Ferraris, twenty diamond watches, or two planes?” What will these objects do for me and for the world? “
“I was hungry, and I had to work in the fields; I survived difficult times, I played football barefoot, I had no education and many other things, but today with what I earn from football, I can help my people. I built schools, a stadium, we provide clothes, shoes, food for the disadvantaged. In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all the inhabitants of a very poor region of Senegal, which contributes to their family’s economy. “
“I don’t need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, and even planes. I prefer that my people receive a little of what life has given me. “
