Sadio Mane celebrated last night by showing fans his new no.10 – awarded to him last week!
The Senegalese bagged a last minute penalty to secure us a 2-1 victory over Manchester City – although in truth – it wasn’t an especially competitive game due to the strange sides both managers selected.
But Mane’s reaction to his goal made us, and him, smile!
You could immediately tell how much it means to him that he’s been awarded the iconic number 10, previously donned by Coutinho before the Brazilian joined Barcelona back in January.
Watch Sadio’s goal and the celebration, here:

Many assumed it was being held for Nabil Fekir, but it’s not looking unlikely that a new playmaker will arrive before the transfer window closes.
Still, Mane can drop into central positions and play sublime through-balls, like a traditional no.10 – so it’s up to our 26-year-old to show he deserves it!
