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 in the 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 club captain Jordan Henderson and vice-captain James Milner are 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!”
Since Mane departed Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp’s men have struggled to replace not just his goals but his influence on the team.
Liverpool are currently ninth in the Premier League table with 29 points, 10 points behind fourth-placed Manchester United and a mammoth 21 points behind league leaders Arsenal.
Klopp’s men are taking on Brighton and Hove Albion this weekend as they look to continue their defence of the FA Cup.
