Owing to their tremendous popularity and financial strength, modern day footballers have become global icons. Coming from a humble background, some of these players have actively participated in charity work by giving back to their local communities. Such is the case of Sadio Mane, who grew up in Bambali, an underdeveloped village in Senegal.With very little to do, the 29 year old opted to play football despite his father’s restrictions. However, at the age of seven, Mane experienced the bitter side of life as his father died after a prolonged battle with an undisclosed sickness. As gathered, his father was without proper medical attention due to the unavailability of any hospital in their community and as such, he was being treated with traditional herbs.

In 2014, Southampton brought him to the Premier league and two years after, Jurgen Klopp signed him for Liverpool.
