Former Senegal international forward Diomansy Kamara has said that Sadio Mane may have to leave Liverpool if he has to win the Ballon d’Or.
According to the former Portsmouth and Fulham forward, Mane “deserved” to win the award last year.
Kamara feels Mane “may have to leave Liverpool” to stand a chance of winning the coveted individual football accolade.
“If Mane one day wants to win the Ballon d’Or, he may have to leave Liverpool as the club are maybe not the best advocates for him, despite their outstanding performances,” Kamara told ESPN.
“He needs to continue on the road he’s going down, as he wasn’t too far from finishing on the podium, and even for me he maybe deserve to win it this year.
“Now he needs to continue to work, and maybe even change clubs, because we’ve seen that Liverpool don’t really play to Mane’s strengths and people gave their votes to Virgil Van Dijk even though Mane and to lesser extent Mohamed Salah were equally in the running.”
It should be noted that Mane, 27, has scored 77 goals in 161 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions, since joining them in 2016 from Southampton.
He has scored 14 goals and provided 7 assists in 27 league games for the Reds this season and was the Premier League’s joint top scorer last season with 22 goals along side his Egyptian teammate Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s Gabonese forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
