Footage has emerged of Sadio Mane helping to clean the toilets at his local mosque just hours after firing Liverpool to a victory over Leicester City.

The Liverpool star is a devout Muslim and is often pictured at mosques in the city, whilst he celebrates goals by performing the sujood, which sees him touch his head on the turf and praying. His father was the Imam in his local mosque when he grew up in Senegal.

While some Premier League footballers might celebrate a fourth successive victory and a fourth goal of the season in more glamorous fashion, Mane showcased his devotion to his faith instead.

He is videoed helping a man and young boy clean the Al-Rahma Mosque in Liverpool, which is just three miles from Anfield, with the help of a pressure washer.

The striker has enjoyed a stunning start to the season and is thought to earn £90,000 per week at Liverpool, however it is no surprise to see him involved at the mosque and giving back to the community.


He donated £200,000 to help build a school in the village of Bambaly, where he grew up, and is involved in other charities too, including getting involved in the fight against HIV in Malawi.

“It’s an initiative that is close to my heart,” Mane has previously told the Liverpool Echo

“It’s something that I am very happy to do. It’s important to help people. They approached me about the initiative, and it became clear I was maybe the right person to help.

“When they told me about it, I was very, very happy to help out. I’m looking forward to doing my bit.”
