“A year and a half after playing in the muddy stadium in his hometown of Bambali, Mane participated in the opening ceremony of the new stadium on the 3rd with his own funds. It is one of his new investments that he has invested in his hometown for a long time,” the media said.
Mane, who played at the muddy stadium in Bambali in June 2022, then began work to create a new stadium and saw it completed a year and a half later on the 3rd.
“I’m really happy to be with you today and welcome you to my hometown of Bambali, where everything started,” Mane told local media. “I feel tremendous pride and am very happy to be able to stand in front of you, in front of you, in front of the stadium that meets FIFA standards. It means so much to me.”
Mane was born in Bambali in 1992, moved to FC Metz (France) in the summer of 2011, and made his European debut. Afterwards, he moved to RB Salzburg (Austria) and moved to Southampton in the summer of 2014, where he entered the Premier League. In 2016, he moved to Liverpool and played as a big club striker.
Mane scored 120 goals and 48 assists in a total of 269 matches in Liverpool, and had a big career, winning the UEFA Champions League in the 2018-2019 season and the Premier League in the 2019-2020 season. He also scored 22 goals in the Premier League in the 2018-2019 season, becoming the league’s top scorer.
Mane, who moved to Bayern Munich, a prestigious German Bundesliga team, in the summer of 2022, led his team to win the Bundesliga in the 2022-2023 season and moved to Saudi professional league Al Nasr in the summer of 2023.
Mane, who continues to play tremendously on the European and Saudi stages, is making a lot of money, especially in Saudi Arabia, receiving 650,000 pounds (about 1.08382 billion won) a week. He is making a great impression by investing in the development of his underdeveloped hometown.
Prior to the stadium, Mane built schools and hospitals in Bambali and contributed to the establishment of a 4G network in Senegal. He has been making dedicated efforts by providing necessary supplies across Senegal.
In addition, Mane provides 70 euros (about 100,000 won) per month to each Bambali household with 2,000 people, providing financial support. In the official announcement, he announced that he will continue to provide support and investment to help local residents.
