Sadio Mane’s Wooden Statue Sculpted In Senegal Ridiculed, Fans Not Impressed
Sadio Mane’s wooden statue sculpted by a Senegalese artist has sparked a massive noise on social media, with fans mocking the designer for the ‘terrible’ work.
An unidentified artist designed the statue to honour the African Footballer Of The Year, Mane.
The Bayern Munich forward clinched the coveted continental individual gong following his outstanding performance during the Africa Cup Of Nations.
Sadio Mane was integral to Senegal’s first-ever AFCON cup after netting the winning penalty against Egypt.
Following Mane’s impressive performance, the Senegalese artist from Bambali-a hometown of the ex-Liverpool star sculptured the wooden statue depicting the footballer’s celebration during the AFCON 2021 tournament.
However, the designed wooden statue left social media users in stitches, mocking the piece for its poor quality.
Fans argued that the statue does not resemble the African footballer Sadio Mane and it serves an embarrassment to the footballer and Africa.
Below are the comments from Twitter where fans mocked the statue.
