Some Liverpool fans love 'beautiful' Sadio Mane celebration

Liverpool fans are loving Sadio Mane after his celebration against Crystal Palace on Saturday. The forward had something special lined up.

Sadio Mane finally got a goal this weekend and his celebration was one to note. Mane went back to last month to keep a promise.

The forward had held a surprise video call with Lee Swan, a volunteer at the Florrie in Liverpool. Lee has spent this year helping to deliver food parcels with the community centre for people all over the city.

And as part of his chat, Mane talked about goal celebrations.

“You know me, I like to copy celebrations,” said Mane. “If you have any celebrations, show me now.”

Lee had one in mind – kissing his finger and pointing to the heavens. “For my grandad,” he said.

Well, Lee had to wait to see it but Mane finally bagged a goal on Saturday against Palace. And he delivered on his promise, kissing his finger and pointing to the sky for Lee’s grandad.

Understandably, Liverpool fans loved the gesture.

What RTK has to say

You’d need a heart of ice to not love this. The fact Mane remembered in the moment – weeks after the chat – says a lot about the man.

Even more so, this was a huge moment for Mane anyway. It was his first goal since mid-October and yet he still kept his promise.

We didn’t think we could love the £34m man any more than we do, and yet here we are.
