The Senegal and Liverpool superstar, who recently made headlines after funding the construction of a school in Bambali, has now discussed why he is not interested in collecting luxury items.

"Why would I want 10 Ferraris, 20 diamond watches, or two planes? What will these objects do for me and for the world?" he told nsemwoha, as cited by AS.

"I was hungry, and I had to work in the field; I survived hard times, played football barefooted, I did not have an education and many other things, but today, with what I earn thanks to football, I can help my people.

"I built schools, a stadium, we provide clothes, shoes, food for people who are in extreme poverty.

"In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all people in a very poor region of Senegal, which contributes to their family economy.

"I do not need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, trips and even planes. I prefer that my people receive a little of what life has given me."
