The Ballon d’Or France Football is, undoubtedly, one of the most coveted distinctions of the world of professional football. For many, this is the ultimate consecration for a player. This year, Sadio Mané is off to a flying start. In turn, he dribbles the competition in Africa.
The most prestigious distinction a player can have, the Ballon d’Or is very coveted. For the season 2019, four players will dispute it: Sadio Mané, Virigil Van Dijk, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. By climbing at this stage, the Senegalese striker is in front of any other African player.
Suffice to say, by this observation, he is the best player in Africa. Thus, the African Golden Ball is his, without any competition. Indeed, with Mohamed Salah, the two men share certainly the same club but did not deliver the same copies during this season.
Sadio Mané has been to all the great fights of his club. With the Reds he finished second in the Premier League with 22 goals on the clock. As much as Mohamed Salah but with more important moments, determining goals. In the Champions League, he will have played his big score. The highlight of the club show, the Supercoupe d’Europe, which he flies over with a double.
In Africa, the CAN was the barometer to decide between the two players. There, Sadio Mané beats him to the ground. Indeed, Mohamed Salah and Egypt were prematurely out of the competition while Senegal, thanks to Sadio Mané, reached the final against Algeria.
For the rest of the aspirants to the African Golden Ball, it is the same observation. Riyad Mahrez, although having won trophies this season with Manchester City, can not win at the Sky Blues. He is often on the bench. As for Aubameyang, the other competitor, it is especially his Arsenal club that handicaps him. This is not the case for Sadio Mané.
To show this good form of the Senegalese striker, his season debut with Liverpool. His recent performance against Aston Villa is indicative of the mastery of Senegalese. This 2019 season, Sadio Mané is the best in Africa, without debate.
