Viral video of Senegal's star Man Sadio Mane pulling of the dance moves pleases fans

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how football fans got to see why Liverpool and Senegal striker Sadio Mane is so elusive on the field.

Mane is seen in a video shared by the Senegal Football Federation shaking what his mama gave him alongside a saxophonist and dancing singers.

The video was taken when Senegal departed for the 2021 African Cup of Nations in Senegal.

Mane scored a penalty with the very last kick of the game as the Lions of Teranga saw off a stubborn Zimbabwe in a group B encounter at the Kouekong Stadium in Bafoussam.

Senegal has never won an AFCON championship, but the number one ranked team in Africa are favourites to finally break this particularly aggravating duck
