The Liverpool and Senegal Lions striker, Sadio Mané, has just put an end to the heated debate raised by one of his outbursts, when he judged the state of the pitch of the Lat Dior Stadium in Thies, following the match against Zambia, as catastrophic.
The debate raised by the Senegalese international, Sadio Mané, on the state of the pitch of the Lat Dior stadium in Thies (70 km from Dakar) that the player considered « catastrophic », following the match won by Senegal against Zambia (3-1) has been inflamed in this West African country, with responses from the president of the Senegalese Football Federation and the Minister of Sports.
If the president of the federation, Me Augustin Senghor, has been quiet, the Minister of Sports, Matar Bâ, has not put the gloves on. In fact, the Senegalese sport boss tried to reframe the player, triggering in turn the anger of many Senegalese. This Thursday, addressing the subject, including the exit of the Minister of Sports, Sadio Mané, in a press conference with Oryx Energies, cuts short.
« I said it, but without bad intention. You understand it well, » said Sadio Mané. « It has made a lot of noise, certainly. But you have to forget it! I said what I had to say. It’s behind us, we don’t even need to come back to it, » continued the Lions of Teranga defender, who seems to definitively close this debate.
