Sadio Mané and the dangerous waiver he signed to play with a head injury in the African League of Nations

Sadio Mané was ready to give his life for his country.

Sadio Mané was one of the most talked about names at the start of this summer’s transfer window. After announcing his departure from Liverpool during an internship with Senegal, the player left a lot to talk about. Now, as part of Bayern Munich, the Senegalese has confirmed his attachment to his national team by wanting to “give his life” in order to play in the quarter-finals of the African League of Nations.

The former Premier League striker suffered a blow in the Nations League round of 16 against Cape Verde goalkeeper Vozinha, who was due to rule him out of the quarter-finals due to a medical protocol. These measures were not important for Mané, since he decided to play against Equatorial Guinea despite the refusal of the club, the Senegalese medical staff, the technical staff and the Federation.

After the impact he suffered in the head, Sadio was doubtful for the game against Equatorial Guinea. The Liverpool club asked the national team and FIFA to give him five days off to ensure his recovery, but it was the player who refused to grant this request. To play, Mané offered to sign a contract stating that any accident (death) would be his fault.

Mané was not going to miss a game for his country

Sadio told Pro Direct Soccer France what he needs to do to get back on the pitch for the African League of Nations quarter-final. Despite the refusal of all parties, the player now playing for the Bavarian giants has not changed his mind. He offered his life to play in the quarter-finals against Equatorial Guinea.

“When I was injured against Cape Verde and had a concussion, I never spoke about it that day. Liverpool put pressure on the federation and wrote a letter to FIFA their saying I needed at least five days off, which meant I would miss the quarter-finals,” the striker said.
