In a video that is circulating on social media, Mane displayed how ambidextrous he is after scoring a perfect strike with his left foot.

Ronaldo was clearly impressed by the display of skill and was spotted nodding his head.

Both players have been instrumental in Al-Nassr's campaign this season, helping the club to the knockout stages of the Asian Champions League.

The Knights of Najd also sit second on the Saudi Pro League table, just seven points behind Al-Hilal, per Sofascore.

Mane rejoined his teammates a fortnight ago after Senegal's Round of 16 elimination from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. He scored a goal and provided three assists at the tournament.

Sadio Mane declines days off

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Mane ended his vacation in Senegal to rejoin his Al-Nassr teammates in training ahead of the resumption of the Saudi Pro League.

The Saudi top flight league has been on a break due to the Asian continental championship currently ongoing in Qatar, and the African star has shown his commitment.

Mane was also involved in international football duties after participating in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations campaign with the Senegalese national football team.

Sports Brief also reported that Bayern Munich youngster, Mathys Tel, expressed his admiration for Mane.

The young forward insisted he learned a lot from the Al-Nassr star despite limited time together in Germany.

Mane spent only a season with the Bavarians, winning the Bundesliga title before joining Al-Nassr in the summer.
