AFCON 2021: Stadium To Be Named After Mane In Senegal

Sadio Mane has been rewarded for his part in Senegal’s Africa Cup of Nations triumph by having a stadium named after him in his birthplace.

Mane, 29, converted the title-winning penalty as the Teranga Lions overcame Egypt in Sunday’s final to secure his country’s first-ever continental title.

The mayor of his birthplace Sedhiou, Abdoulaye Diop, has now announced the town’s new football stadium will bear his name.

The future Stade Sadio Mane is currently under construction and due to open next year.

The Mayor declared: “Sadio Mane has honoured all of Senegal, the Sedhiou region and the entire Casamance area.

“I have decided to name the Sedhiou stadium after him.

“In doing so I wish to convey the gratitude of all the sons and daughters of the region towards him.

“He has made all of mankind aware of Bambali and Sedhiou, the region’s main town.

“This is a gift that Sadio Mane truly deserves.”

Mane has previously donated money for hospitals, health centres and mosques in Senegal.

    “Anything you do there without winning the trophy is a failure” I can never forget those quotes. I love the quotes from Alhaji Diouf and it really inspired them to victory.. If na naija our own inspiration quotes na: “Anything you win there (whether bronze, silver or the cup itself) without playing beautiful football is a failure” Naija! LMFAO!!!
