Sadio Mane has proven once again that he’s one of the most humble footballers in the game.
Despite earning £100,000-a-week, the Liverpool star remains completely grounded and showed his kindness while on international duty on Wednesday.
Before Senegal’s fixture against Congo, he was filmed walking off the team bus, before pausing to help a member of staff unload items and bring them inside.
One of his teammates can be seen simply walking past, but not Sadio.
The winger selflessly picked up as much as he could carry to help his team’s officials, before striding into the stadium.
What a guy. Check out the video below, which has gone viral:

Class. Of course, Mane is no stranger to these kinds of acts. His charitable acts are well documented.
Earlier this year, the Liverpool man donated £200,000 to help build a school in his home country and even visited the site to make sure construction was going ahead.
He’s also spoken out about why he chooses to use his money for good – and it’s genuinely heartwarming to see.
“Why would I want ten Ferraris, twenty diamond watches, or two planes? What will these objects do for me and for the world?” Mane said, per AS.
“I was hungry, and I had to work in the field; I survived hard times, played football barefoot, I did not have an education and many other things, but today with what I win thanks to football, I can help my people.
“I built schools, a stadium, we provide clothes, shoes, food for people who are in extreme poverty. In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all people in a very poor region of Senegal which contributes to their family economy.
“I do not need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, trips and even planes. I prefer that my people receive a little of what life has given me.”
Mane is a true role model for us all and he’s shown us time and time again. These little acts, like helping to carry items off the team bus, are just as good to see as his big charity donations.
