Qatar 2022: Sadio Mane’s advice to Senegal ahead of Netherlands clash
African champions Senegal will be without their key man and African Player of the Year Sadio Mane as they kick off their World Cup campaign.
Mane is ruled out of the World Cup due to injury and has reportedly had surgery on his right fibula following an injury while playing for Bayern Munich recently.
While he was named in the World Cup squad, his fate would be sealed after medic’s assessment proved that he would not be eligible to feature for the side in the tournament given the timeline of the recovery.
In an post on Instagram, Mane has advised the Teranga Lions to approach every game at the World Cup as a final.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank you who have sent me messages of support following my injury.”
“This Monday, our dear country will compete at the World Cup Qatar 2022. I’m sure the Lions will approach every game as a final. They’ll fight as a team.”
