Saudi Pro League star Sadio Mane would regularly be fined ‘a lot’ of his wages after breaking club rule
| Last updated
Senegal star Sadio Mane was often on the end of a big fine during his time playing for Liverpool.
Mane ended his trophy-laden six-year spell at Anfield last summer after completing a transfer to German Bundesliga side Bayern Munich.
During his time on Merseyside, Mane made 269 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 120 goals. The forward developed into one of the best players in the world and got his hands on the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and the Carabao Cup.
However, it has now been revealed by his former teammate Andy Robertson that Mane was fined multiple times for forgetting his passport for away trips.
The Scottish full-back told the We Are Liverpool podcast: “Some of the fines are expensive.
“If you forget your passport for an away trip, you're getting a lot of your wage taken off you.
“It's happened a few times, Sadio [Mane] was a big culprit for that and obviously it delays the plane and delays when we get there. We had to put a big fine in.”
Robertson also revealed that former club captain Jordan Henderson and vice-captain James Milner were the ones in charge of the fine system.
He added: “Hendo and Millie make a lot of decisions. For instance like fines, Millie is the fine police, he is in charge. Since I have been here he has been fined once and the place erupted!”
This summer, Mane left Bayern to become one of many big-name players to ditch European football for the Saudi Professional League after he signed for Al Nassr.
Since joining Al Nassr, Mane has made 16 appearances across four different competitions, scoring nine goals and assisting two.
