Sadio Mane, Liverpool superstar’s cracked iPhone breaks fans hearts but his response is legendary! Sadio Mané has given the world a lesson in modesty after some fans spotted him carrying a cracked iPhone while preparing for a game in the Premier League.

Sadio Mané is one of the superstars in the Liverpool team. His presence and exploits have seen Jurgen Klopp’s side at the top of the Premier League table. He earns approximately 10.2 million dollars annually and is one of the top footballers in the world. However, recently, there was one photo uploaded by Mané which broke the hearts of many fans.
It is now revealed why he is carrying the cracked iPhone. His response is now winning the internet and it has given many fans a taste of how humble and modest the Senegalese forward is.
In an interview with TeleDakar in October 2019, he had outlined that his major goal after becoming one of the top players was to help people. In the same interview, Mané revealed that the iPhone 11 is a gift from his dear friend Gini Wijnaldum, a Dutch football player. Although he is more than capable of buying a new iPhone, he chose to honour friendship.
What would that do for the world?
“Why would I want ten Ferraris, twenty diamond watches and two jet planes?
I starved, I worked in the fields, I played barefoot, and I didn’t go to school. Now I can help people. I prefer to build schools and give poor people food or clothing. I have built schools and a stadium; we provide clothes, shoes, and food for people in extreme poverty. In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all people from a very poor Senegalese region in order to contribute to their family economy. I do not need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, trips, and even planes. I prefer that my people receive a little of what life has given me,” Mane said.
