Senegal player, Sadio Mane has been warned not to think about winning the 2019 Ballon d’Or.
The warning came from Senegal coach, Alious Cisse who is currently preparing to lead his team against Algeria in the AFCON 2019.
Sadio Mane has had a great season. He helped Liverpool lift the 2019 UEFA Champions League against Tottenham and has led Senegal to the final of the AFCON 2019.
“You can’t think about the Ballon d’Or.
“What’s important for Sadio is that he continues to fight for the team and delivers performances.
“He’s in that mindset. My talks with him are clear: give everything for the team, and the team will give you it back.
“He’s a boy whose head is screwed on right, who understands the team will always come before individuals,” Cisse said on Ahram Online.
The only African footballer to have won the prestigious Ballon d’Or prize was George Weah in 1995.
