Sadio Mané (born 10 April 1992) is a Senegalese professional footballer who plays as a winger for Premier League club Liverpool and the Senegal national team.

There was a period growing up when Yan Valery could have trodden a path away from football. He was a supremely gifted young footballer, but after two years playing for local side Champigny FC 94 he decided he could no longer be bothered to jog the couple of laps around the pitch to warm-up before

Yan Valery has revealed he moved to England in 2015 because Southampton had the “best academy in the country” and Liverpool forward Sadio Mane was the player to give him guidance in exchange for cleaning his boots.

The 20-year-old has been considered as one of Southampton’s brightest youth prospects for years now and has finally integrated himself in with the first-team under Ralph Hasenhuttl this season.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Sam Cunningham on i news, Valery explained why he came to England and how Mane offered guidance to help him settle in during his St. Mary’s days.

Mane scoops Liverpool's Player of the Month award for January Liverpool confirmed on Friday that Sadio Mane scooped the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award following his impressive displays in January.

Well deserved, Sadio! https://t.co/Jgm1eodjYI (@LFC) The Senegalese attacker has been instrumental in helping the Reds maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table, with Manchester City still breathing down their necks.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane says he was forced to sneak away from home as a teenager to pursue his dream of becoming a footballer. Mane has scored three goals in three games for Liverpool this season. However, he says he was initially unable to convince his family to let him leave his hometown

Yan Valery (born 22 February 1999) is a French-Tunisian professional footballer who plays as a defender for Southampton. Valery joined Southampton in 2015 from Stade Rennais.

“I decided to come to Southampton because I always wanted to play in England and because it was the best academy in the country. It’s good to talk to a first team player, he can give you some advice, it’s helpful. Sadio told me if I had a problem with something I can speak to him about it.”

The French-Tunisian right-wing-back went on to reveal Mane taught him some of his first English words to help on the football pitch like “man on” and “near post,” as well as the Saints’ U23 manager Radhi Jaidi, a French-speaking Tunisian.

Valery is expected to start against Manchester United today, with Southampton under heavy pressure as they sit just two points above Cardiff City in the relegation places.
