Sadio Mane Has Stadium Named After Him For Helping Senegal Win First-Ever AFCON title



Sadio Mane has been rewarded for his part in Senegal’s Africa Cup of Nations triumph after the West African country won its first-ever AFCON title.

The Liverpool striker, 29, converted the title-winning penalty as the Teranga Lions overcame Egypt in the final. He also scored three goals and set up two more during the Cameroon-based tournament.

It was Senegal’s first-ever AFCON success in the AFCON tournament.

The mayor of his birthplace Sedhiou has now announced the town’s new football stadium will bear his name.

The future Stade Sadio Mane is currently under construction and due to open next year.

Mayor Abdoulaye Diop declared: “Sadio Mane has honoured all of Senegal, the Sedhiou region, and the entire Casamance area.

“I have decided to name the Sedhiou stadium after him.

“In doing so I wish to convey the gratitude of all the sons and daughters of the region towards him.

“He has made all of mankind aware of Bambali and Sedhiou, the region’s main town.

“This is a gift that Sadio Mane truly deserves.”
