"But it is true that there are certain values circulating in football that bother me a bit based on my education.

"But, instead of criticising out loud, sometimes I prefer to distance myself a bit.

"The main thing is not to change, and I don't think it has changed.

"And, for a boy who comes from a small town in Casamance, it is already a great victory to resist all that."​

"I love their extraordinary life, but that life is not made for me."

Mane is widely considered as one of the best forwards in the Premier League and beyond following his heroics for Liverpool over the years. 

He helped his side win their first Premier League title and starred in their Champions League triumph in 2019. 

The 29-year-old also delivered on the international stage, winning the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal earlier in the year.
