Ballon d'Ór 2022: Sadio Mane Becomes The First Winner Of The Socrates Award

Sadio Mane has been awarded France Football’s inaugural Socrates Award in recognition of his charitable work in Senegal.

In recent years, the Bayern Munich forward has built a public hospital and funded schools and families in his home village of Bambali, as well as donated to the Senegalese National Committee to help fight the Covid-19 pandemic in his country.

“I’m thrilled to be a guest tonight,” Mane said. “Sometimes I’m a little shy, but I’m always eager to do what I can to help my people.”

The Socrates Prize is a humanitarian award that serves as a reminder to the players that they are in a unique position to help make the world a better place.

The award is named after the late footballer Socrates, who co-founded the Corinthians Democracy movement in 1980s Brazil in opposition to the ruling military government.
