WATCH: Liverpool's 2-goal Sadio Mane gives one young fan unforgettable birthday present

Liverpool's two-goal Sadio Mane gave one young fan an unforgettable birthday present yesterday.

Following the final whistle for victory over Newcastle, the Senegal international showed his class as he gave his shirt away to a lucky fan.

Billy Ripley, who was attending the match with his dad, was shocked as Mane jogged towards him with the top.

The 13-year-old had taken a sign to Anfield which read: "It's my birthday can I have your shirt?"

Billy later told the Liverpool Echo: "Mane is my favourite player, I was shaking and buzzing."

It was a record-breaking day for Mane as became the first player in Premier League history to play 50 games at home without losing a single match.
