Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has admitted he would “trade” the trophies he’s lifted during his club career to win the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal.

The 29-year-old, who has linked up with his national team ahead of this year’s tournament in Cameroon, has a plentiful trophy cabinet at club level.

Winning both the Premier League and the Champions League on Merseyside alongside the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup, Mane also lifted the Austrian Bundesliga and Austrian Cup during his time with Red Bull Salzburg prior to joining Southampton in 2014.

A losing finalist with Senegal in 209, the forward made the bullish claim in a new advert for New Balance.

“When I was a kid, they called me Ballonbuwa (ball wizard), but I was always more of a Gaynde (lion): ruthless, explosive, a hunter.

“I have been hunting my whole career, but no matter what I have caught – I am still hungry.

“My people have waited a long time. I would trade it all to win this one. This is my time. The Lion roars.”

The former Southampton forward moved to the Swans in August for a modest fee. However, he has struggled to nail down a regular place in Martin’s team, and the coach has revealed that disciplinary problems could be at the root of Obafemi’s absence from the team. Martin said after his team’s 4-0 loss to Bournemouth: “Michael understands why he’s not in the squad, he agrees that he shouldn’t be in the squad, it’s nothing major. “We’re here to try and improve players. It’s such a strong group culturally. We spend a lot of time talking and he understands he needs to be better in a few aspects to become the player he wants to become and to become the person he wants to become. “We have to really try and help him to get there. Too often in football, you’re expected to sign someone, a young man on a good contract then just play football, it’s not the case. “He needs more support from us, he’ll get it and he’ll become the player we think he can be and he wants to be. “But there are certain things you have to make sure you do to be in the squad. You have to behave every day like what you are, a professional footballer. “He’s done nothing major but there’s stuff we need to help him with. “He’s disappointed. I’m disappointed he’s not here, but performance doesn’t come before culture, it’s the other way around. He’ll get there and I’m sure he’ll be back involved soon. “It’s just a few disciplinary things in terms of the way we train, time keeping and it does matter, unfortunately. “If it was Joel Piroe doing the same, even though he’s our top goalscorer, it’d be the same consequence. “That’s where we’re at. He understands and he respects it. He will be better for it because he’s a really brilliant lad who hasn’t been shown enough care or love for a while because of the position he’s been in.”
