Oliseh praises Mane for consistency
Reveals hope for the World Cup
Senegalese is the complete package.
Oliseh praised the men’s 2022 Caf Player of the Year award winner after he led Senegal to a 2-0 victory – he scored the second goal after taking part in the build-up for the opener – over Bolivia.
The goal is Mane’s 34th for the national side and his first for Teranga Lions since August.
“Sadio Mane is just the complete package! Hardworking, humble, disciplined and has been, in my opinion,” the retired Super Eagles’ defensive midfielder tweeted, “the most consistent African superstar for the past 10 years since I saw him shine at Red Bull Salzburg.
The goal in the international friendly should be a welcome boost for Mane, who has struggled to find the back of the net with his club.
Despite scoring in four straight games as he started life at Allianz Arena, the Senegal forward – who left Liverpool in the summer after six successful seasons – has failed to score in his last six games, including two in the Uefa Champions League.
Senegal have another friendly lined up as they are set to face World Cup-bound Iran on Tuesday.
It is another chance for the Premier League winner to sharpen his goalscoring boots before he returns to Bayern Munich, where they will face Bayer Leverkusen in their first match after the international break.
