The spearhead of the Teranga Lions and Liverpool Reds Sadio Mané, continues to flaunt all his qualities and impress the faithful of Anfield in the beginning of the 2017/2018 fiscal year. But before becoming the new darling of the English public, the Senegalese saliva it on the exploits of his idol of always El-Hadji Ousseynou Diouf (80 appearances and 6 achievements under the jersey of the Reds between 2002 and 2004).
Indeed, the man with 10 achievements in the UEFA Champions League season has reiterated his admiration for his illustrious compatriot at the English site ‘Liverpoolecho’. The defector from Southampton is disturbed by it:
” When I was a child, I looked at El-Hadji Diouf as a hero. He has also played in Liverpool. He was the best Senegalese player at the time and he has always been a source of motivation for me .
By designating the former Lions captain as his idol, Bambaly’s child risks the wrath of chauvinist supporters of his club when we know the tumultuous past of El-Hadji Diouf with Liverpool fans.
