Bayern Munich star Sadio Mane won, Thursday, for himself a prestigious individual award.
The prize in question? Best player in Africa from CAF.
And, of course, Senegalese Mane has long been revealed as one of the three finalists for the award, along with former Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah and fellow countryman Edward Mendy.
It comes with the 30-year-old enjoying an impressive season in 2021/22, which saw him snatch glory in all of the Africa Cup of Nations, FA Cup and UEFA Cup finals.
Not only that, but Mane also led his country to qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar, while advancing to the position in both the Premier League and the Champions League.
After that, achieving a very productive 12 months was a dream for Bayern Munich, as Mane exited the mark in the colors of the German giants to the tune of a goal and assist in the friendly defeat of DC United last night.
In contrast, it should come as no great surprise, on Thursday, when we hear about the shape of the bomber being recognized on a global scale.
As noted above, Mane recently picked up a much-coveted individual award, beating the competition to be named African Player of the Year for the second time in three years:
The coolest Africa!
Sadio Mane named Player of the Year (MEN) for the second time!
