Liverpool fans loved the generosity of their Senegalese forward Sadio Mane after helping his team carry water into the dressing room before the 2-0 win against Congo on Wednesday.
Senegal’s efforts to reach a second consecutive Africa Cup of Nations Final got off to the best possible start.
Mane is one of the standout players in the national team, who are expected to win Group I of the AFCON qualifying table.

However, fans took note of the actions of the 27-year-old before the game even began. Footage showed Mane helping his coaching staff carry bottles of water into the stadium in an unexpected gesture of kindness from the Liverpool man.
Last year, he was pictured helping to clean the toilets at his local mosque, hours after guiding the Reds to victory against Leicester.
Supporters heaped praise on the Champions League winner and made their feelings clear on social media.
Here you will find some of the many appreciative responses from Liverpool fans:
The great part about this is you know none of it is fabricated. Genuinely great person.
