Senegal superstar Sadio Mane is reportedly set to tie the knot on Sunday, less than a week before the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations begins in the Ivory Coast.
According to multiple sources, the marriage ceremony will take place in Keur Massar, Senegal and will be attended by close family members and friends.
The identity of the woman who stole the heart of the two-time African Player of the Year is still not known but he seems ready to settle down before departing for the AFCON where Senegal are seeking to defend their title.
Sadio Mane Opens Stadium
This comes just days after the Senegalese and Al-Nasser superstar Sadio Mane opened the Bambali Stadium, which he built at his own expense for the people of his home village in Senegal, West Africa.
The mini stadium, funded entirely by Mane himself, replaces the humble mud pitch where the talented striker was seen playing just two years ago during an off-season visit to Senegal.
The newly constructed facility, now officially named Stade De Bambali, was unveiled at a grand opening ceremony attended by prominent figures from the State of Senegal. The event served as an opportunity for the community to express gratitude and support for Mane’s remarkable initiative towards his birthplace.
In 2022, Mane played a match on the original muddy field before deciding to transform it into a modern stadium at his own expense.
Sadio Mane’s has garnered applause across the African continent, for his philanthropy beyond the football field.
The football star has previously contributed to the development of several schools, hospitals, and essential resources in Senegal.
