Liverpool forward Sadio Mane was booed by the Senegal fans in their win against Equatorial Guinea during the African Nations Cup Qualifiers game.
The Senegal international who was hurt by the booing from his own countrymen left the pitch in tears as he was consoled by his teammates who were unhappy with the display by the fans.
Senegal have already confirmed their qualification for the biggest continent’s tournament but there are still fears that the Reds forward may have picked up an injury.
The situation was later confirmed by the Senegalese media which claimed that Sadio Mane was booed because of his performance in the game.
There are suggestions that he intentionally gave that level of performance in order to be fit and available for his England club football which they claim should not be more important than Mane’s fatherland.
It would be recalled that the Senegal international sustained a thumb injury while on international duty last month which ruled him out of the second half of the game.
The fans that were unhappy at his absence are of the opinion that he has given more to club football than he has to the national side which is unacceptable to them.
However, the Liverpool fans stormed Twitter platform to console their beloved player as well as defend him.
