The Reds’ player decided to make the donation “spontaneously when he saw the evolution of the situation” with the increase of Covid-19 cases in Senegal, his agent said.

Sadio Mané also shared a video on social media where he asked his compatriots to take coronavirus “extremely seriously”.

In the meantime, Mane and his teammates have been training using individual programmes.
