SADIO MANE RECENTLY WROTE:
“Why would I want ten Ferraris, twenty diamond watches, or two planes? What will these objects do for me and for the world? I was hungry, and I had to work in the field;
I survived hard times, played football barefooted, 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 mine receive a little of what life has given me”.
What a noble human being! If only we had more wealthy people with his character – it would be a better world, wouldn’t it?
Truly smart guy. He knows what is important in life. May God give you many more things because you’ll definitely share with the less fortunate.
