Liverpool forward, Sadio Mane had recently shared his dream struggles with his fans to encourage them about believing in themselves. The Senegalese winger opened up on how he started his football career as a young man trying to survive and making his dreams come true.
“I remember the first day I arrived in France to take tests and sign with FC Metz. I was supposed to train from the day I arrived but the coach told me to stay at home.
“I had no credit on my phone card to call my mother and tell her that I had gone to France. The next day, I went with some of my friends who were already in Metz and I called her and told her I was in France.
“She said to me: “What, which France?”. She couldn’t believe it. I said: “France in Europe”. She replied: “What do you mean by Europe? You live in Senegal, you are supposed to be with your uncle”. I then said “yes but now I am in Europe”.
She was amazed, it was crazy! She was so surprised that she called me every day to ask me if it was true. She didn’t believe me until one day I told her to go watch TV to see me play. She finally understood that my dream had come true.”❤
