Sadio Mane Fights Coronavirus In Senegal

Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has donated £41,000 to help fight coronavirus in Senegal.

The Senegalese international has been one of the standout players in world football this season with 18 goals and 12 assists for the rampant Reds.

As of Tuesday, his homeland has had 27 confirmed cases of coronavirus.

However, it is understood two of those people have made a full recovery.

Liverpool have not had any positive tests for Covid-19 but players are following personal training programmes at home with the Melwood training ground closed as a precaution.

Mane's donation is the latest in a string of selfless acts from the Reds No10.

The 27-year-old donated £200,000 to help build a school in his home country earlier in 2019 – having already paid to build a hospital.

It’s claimed Mane even gave out football kits and money to local kids on his trip home.
