Senegal paid tribute to Sadio Mane winning the Champions League by allowing him a guard of honour at the beginning of training.
Our no.10 is with his country for the AFCON, and was paid due respect from international team-mates who recognised his achievements this season just gone with Liverpool.
In typically humble fashion, Mane smiles – but looks a little embarrassed!
The Senegal national team gave Sadio Mané a very special welcome after winning the Champions League! 🇸🇳

Similar scenes were on display as various Liverpool players went to join up with their international sides.
Dejan Lovren got a cake with Croatia. Gini Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk were given a rapturous standing ovation on Netherlands duty…
Liverpool’s England players got awkward handshakes and nothing else, however – but we can accept this was probably because there were plenty of Spurs’ losing finalists and nobody wanted to rub it in their faces.
