Sadio Mane has gotten a brand new iPhone 11x Max pro mobile gadget, albeit a gift from his Liverpool teammate Georginio Wijnaldum, following a social media swipe that trailed his old phone.
The Senegalese star brought himself into the middle of backlashes after he was spotted carrying an iPhone with broken screen despite earning £150,000-a-week.
Mane was part of the squad to face Leicester City, a game Liverpool won by 4-0, but on his arrival at Anfield the 27-year-old forward stunned everyone with a phone betraying his money purse.

The pictures of the astonishing scene created a discussion on social media, with the AFCON runner up star’s humility brought to question by football fans.
Meanwhile, Mane’s teammate Georginio Wijnaldum seemed to be aware of the shocking resentment and took a big step by buying a new iPhone 11 pro Max for the Senegalese star, which is more luxurious and expensive.

The video of the new phone, which is worth N600,000, was shared by Mane himself with a note of appreciation for the Dutch star.
“Is here the main man, he gave me iPhone 11 pro for free. Thank you Gini for this,” the forward said.
Sadio Mane will be up against his teammate Mo Salah and Man City’s Riyahd Mahrez for the African footballer of the year award tonight.
Earlier, we had reported that Sadio Mane, against all odds, is becoming a bigger revelation in football despite coming from a local Senegalese community – all thanks to his stellar rise and humility.
Recently, the 27-year-old star was spotted in a video that has now gone viral helping the bus assistants offload packs of bottled water from the national team bus.
