Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar

 Senegalese and Liverpool forward, Saido Made has distanced himself from the glamorous lifestyle lived by some footballers.

Mane who has scored 12 Premier League goals this season, says he prefers being humble, living a simple life and credits his upbringing for his humility.


In a recent interview, Mane even said he follows Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar on social media, but ‘that’s enough’ for him but that certain values held by some footballers ‘irritate’ him

Speaking to L’Equipe, Mane said: ‘I don’t want to give the impression that I’m a very critical person, but it’s true that there are values ??in football that irritate me a little compared to the upbringing I had.

‘But instead of criticising, I prefer to distance myself. The main thing is not to change, and I believe I didn’t. For a boy who comes from a small town, it’s a great victory.’

He was also asked whether he’d like to live like Neymar or Cristiano Ronaldo, to which the Liverpool winger said: 

‘No! I follow them on social networks and that’s enough. I love the incredible life they lead, but I don’t think it’s for me.’

The 29-year-old also confirmed that his ultimate dream in football would be World Cup glory with his home country. 

‘[Win] the World Cup with Senegal,’ Mane said.

‘First you have to guarantee qualification, but I want to believe in crazy projects, and winning the competition with my country is one of them. Gold every year.’
