Sadio Mané has proven why he courts a lot of affection from football fans across the globe following his heartwarming gesture in yesterday's FA Cup finals against Chelsea.

The Senegal talisman, who has been in red-hot form since the 2021 AFCON, wrapped up yet another trophy in the calendar year when his side, Liverpool, edged the Blues on penalty shootouts to clinch the Emirates FA Cup.

Amid the fanfare and celebration following Tsimikas' game-winning penalty, Mané took time out to console his international teammate Edouard Mendy, who was on the losing side.

Ironically, Mendy saved Mané's penalty to send the shootout to sudden death but Tsimikas did the needful as Liverpool kept their quadruple chase alive with the FA Cup success, Liverpool's second trophy of the season.

In a video posted on Twitter, spotted by Sports Brief, Tsimikas' winning strike from the penalty spot led to a massive celebration from the Liverpool players but Sadio headed straight for Edouard Mendy while his teammates were already in a celebration mood.

Mané's absence from Premier League Player of the Season nominees causes uproar on social media

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Sadio Mane's exclusion from the Premier League Player of the Season has raised eyebrows, particularly on social media.

This season, the Senegalese has played a vital role in helping the team reach the Champions League final, and the FA Cup final, while Liverpool are also pushing for the league title as well.

Despite his spike in performance in the Premier League, the 30-year-old was snubbed for the Premier League Player of the Season nomination.
