As the referee brought a close to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, the Reds star was seen falling to the ground in tears before being carried off by his teammates.

According to the Daily Mail, Mane's emotional reaction came as a result of his own supporters booing him during the encounter.

In the match itself, the forward had squandered a big chance, which led to a section of the Senegalese supporters expressing their displeasure with the player.

Senegalese media outlet Metrodakar insisted there was no injury concern for the forward, whom they claim was just unhappy with the reaction from the supporters.
