Sadio Mane handed Ballon d’Or advice

Timothy Aiyeku



Senegal international and Liverpool star Sadio Mane has been told what he must do to be able to stand a chance to contest for the Ballon d’Or award.

There is no doubt about the quality of the Senegal international this season as he has delivered a number of goals for the manager Jurgen Klopp team to keep them at the top in the Premier League table and also qualify to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Sadio Mane took the place of Egyptian international Mohamed Salah in the goalscoring form and has delivered 11 goals in the last 11 games for Liverpool which makes him one of the best in the league at the moment.

However, former Reds midfielder Salif Diao said Sadio Mane has been at that level where he should be in the same league with world-class players as he is now scoring goals against what he was being criticized for.

The Senegalese therefore urged his fellow countryman to do more to win trophies as that is the only thing between him and a Ballon d’Or award.

He noted that Sadio Mane is on fire and this is the right time for him to make things work out for the club.
