In a recent interview with The Times, Mane revealed that he hopes to build on his success in 2019, which saw him win the UEFA Champions League with Liverpool and the African Footballer of the Year award, by winning the coveted Golden Ball.

Despite the club's recent success, which also included the 2019 UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup titles, former Senegal international Kamara believes Mane may need to leave the Reds in order to achieve his personal ambitions.

"If Mane, one day wants to win the Ballon d'Or, he may have to leave Liverpool as the club are maybe not the best advocates for him, despite their outstanding performances," Kamara told ESPN.

"He needs to continue on the road he's going down, as he wasn't too far from finishing on the podium, and even for me he maybe deserved to win it this year.

"Now he needs to continue to work, and maybe even change clubs because we've seen that Liverpool don't really play to Mane's strengths and (people) gave their votes to Virgil van Dijk even though Mane, and to a lesser extent Mohamed Salah, were equally in the running (last year)."
