Sadio Mane Surprises Liverpool Super-Fan In Emotional Video
As you'll know by now, Sadio Mane made the dreams of a Liverpool super-fan come true by giving him the day of his life, including the chance to score at Anfield's Kop End.
This story, which went viral over the weekend, is part of NIVEA MEN's 'Dear Liverpool FC' series which rewards local community heroes and deserving fans with a surprise visit from a superstar player. It's a story that made SPORTbible cry!
Lee Swan - a five-days-a-week volunteer at the Florence Institute, which has delivered thousands of hot meals to vulnerable people this year - got an amazing shock when his favourite player Mane popped up on his screen.
Soon Sadio was (virtually) guiding Lee around Anfield, stopping to meet the Premier League trophy in the dressing room, before Lee got to have a kickabout on that famous pitch.
"You shoot much better than Robbo!" praises Liverpool's No 10, aiming a cheeky joke at the full-back he shares Anfield's left flank with. Lee is clearly emotional by this point (he's not alone) but the best surprise is still to come.
Lee and others at 'The Florrie' have been raising money for an extra van to boost their food deliveries... except when they leave Anfield, the van is parked outside as a gift from NIVEA MEN. On top of that, a package of NIVEA goodies will be donated with every meal Lee serves over the festive period.
"I'm proud to be part of 'Dear Liverpool FC' and to be part of making a difference during these challenging times - it is an honour," said Mane afterwards.
"Giving Lee the tour was a highlight of lockdown. He is a real character and it was a pleasure to help him realise his dream of scoring at Anfield."
Yet another home assist for Sadio, who kept his promise to use Lee's celebration after scoring against Crystal Palace - but you can also get involved in helping as well.
