The distant village was much improved by Mane’s generous donations, which included a substantial sum of £500,000 for a new hospital and, more recently, a reported £200,000 for the construction of a new secondary school.

Additionally, he allegedly supported a gas station and a post office for the benefit of the community.In honor of Mane’s legendary position in the area, a Senegalese sculptor sculpted a statue of him that purports to depict him dancing during the 2021 African Cup of Nations.

While one admirer said, “It’s not the best, but it’s made from the heart I guess,” another added, “Nice body work but on the face, let them replace it with a better head.” Regardless, I believe wood to be somewhat difficult to work with.

Reputation is paramount, according to a third. Being acknowledged and honored in such a way is an honor that not everyone will experience.Manchester City forward Erling Haaland is one of only a few number of players in the world to have a statue erected in his honour.

The 22-year-old was presented with a sculpture that, let’s be honest, just slightly resembles the gifted forward as a token of appreciation for his accomplishments.

In Ålgård, a sculpture near Haaland’s hometown of Jaeren in southern Norway, Norwegian artist Kjetil Barane fashioned the piece with a chainsaw.

According to Barane’s interview with the Norwegian news station NRK, “It is a great honour for me to be allowed to make him as a sculpture, it’s really tough.”

“Working with wood is a pleasure. Cracks in the wood on the striker’s head are evidence that it “bursts and lives,” he continued, giving it its own unique character.
