Liverpool ace Mane enjoys 'gala match' back with hometown village

Sadio Mane has returned to his childhood village in Senegal to play in a local football match.

The exciting forward is expected to leave Liverpool this summer.

Bayern Munich have so far failed with two bids for Mane's signature.

The 30-year-old returned to his hometown village of Bambaly for a charity match, where he was joined by former Reds star El Hadji Diouf and Newcastle Papiss Cisse.

"Back to the source with a gala match on the Bambaly pitch, where it all started!," Mane captioned the photo shared on his Instagram.

"A big thank you to my brothers: Papiss Kiss, Mbaye Diagne, Desire Segbe and without forgetting my lifelong idol, sacred El Hadji Diouf."
