In a video shared on social media, Mane was excited to meet the fan and presented him with his club jersey. The fan sang the name of the player as he praised him in the form of appellations.

The famous Senegal fan is expected to meet the captain of the Teranga Lions, Kalidou Koulibaly, before leaving Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, Mane and his Al-Nassr teammates are preparing for their league game on Saturday against Al-Khaleej.

The former Bayern Munich winger will however miss the match due to an accumulation of yellow cards while Ronaldo continues his suspension for the red card against Al-Hilal.

Mane starred for the Knights of Najd following Ronaldo's absence in the league game against Al-Fayha, where he netted a brace in the 3-1 victory.

The 2022 Africa Player of the Year has netted 12 goals and provided six assists in 27 league games for Al-Nassr this season, per Transfermarkt.

Mane nets brace in Ronaldo's absence

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Sadio Mane starred in the absence of Al-Nassr talisman Cristiano Ronaldo as the Saudi giants strolled to a 3-1 win over Al-Fayha.

A double from the Senegal international and a bullet header from Abdulelah Al Amri rendered Fashion Saka's early strike a consolation, as the Knights of Najd made sure Cristiano Ronaldo's absence was not felt.

Having crashed out of the Saudi Super Cup against Al-Hilal as well as losing Ronaldo to a suspension due to a red card for appearing to elbow his marker, the home side were on the back foot from the onset.
