Media reports that Sadio Mané made close to £100,000 per week at Liverpool were untrue, according to his PR representative, who claims the sum is significantly higher.
Mané’s close associate Bacary Cissé revealed to TV 5 Monde that “Sadio was already earning more than that when he joined Liverpool from Southampton. He extended his contract in 2018 and his salary was much higher than the numbers circulating in the media. “
After learning that players like James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita reportedly made more money than Mané, Liverpool supporters expressed their amusement at the news.
The Liverpool wage structure has recently generated a lot of discussion on Merseyside.
The club’s highest earner, Virgil Van Dijk, makes an estimated £220,000 per week, far less than Cristiano Ronaldo, who earns more than £400,000 per week and is the Premier League’s highest earner.
While having much lower pay than Ronaldo, players like Kevin De Bruyne, David De Gea, and Erling Haaland have much higher pay than Van Dijk.
