Sadio Mane prefers to keep his personal life very quiet and isn’t the kind of player to post a lot of content with his wife. As a matter of fact, the Senegalese superstar is not even married. The 30-year-old has been focused on climbing the ranks to become one of the best players in the world in recent years.
The Bayern Munich star has had a difficult debut campaign in Germany, with a damning injury forcing him to miss the Qatar World Cup last year. Irrespective of that, Mane is still trying to salvage his campaign by pushing Bayern’s charge for a European double.
Mane has developed into a deadly winger in recent years. He played a major role in Liverpool’s success in recent years, helping them win the Champions League as well as Premier League titles. After he left Liverpool, the Reds have really struggled to replace him and are set for a trophyless season.
The winger has the reputation of being a classy, extremely kind person. He’s renowned for his charitable efforts, having donated a lot of money for the development of regions in Senegal – even helping in the construction of schools and hospitals. He’s also humble enough to carry around broken phones even though he can easily replace them.
Does Sadio Mane have a wife?
Mane is also a very private person in general. He does;’ like to show off much about what he has or what he does in his personal time. That’s why wild rumors have come up stating that he’s been dating Sky Sports reporter Melissa Reddy.
The rumors claim that the two have been dating for quite some time, having initially met when Mane was still playing for Liverpool.
They are still unmarried, as it appears that Mane isn’t that eager to get married and have a wife anytime soon. Reddy has been working as a prominent journalist for many years now. She initially worked as a reporter covering Liverpool for Goal and the Independent. The South African journalist has been working as a senior reporter covering Manchester United for some time now.
During her years covering the club, she even wrote a novel named ‘Believe US: How Jurgen Klopp Transformed Liverpool into Title Winners’. This made her quite popular with Liverpool fans and some believe that helped her possibly get closer to Mane too.
Where did the Melissa Reddy-Sadio Mane rumors start?
It definitely wasn’t someone close to Mane or Reddy to spark the rumors that the two have been dating over the last year or so. Mane hardly posts stuff on social media, while the Sky journalist appears to be too busy covering Manchester United’s events than anything else.
This was a wild rumor that was probably created by some fan on social media and ended up spreading as wildfire. There is one picture of the two together when Mane was still at Liverpool, but that was probably one Reddy took with her fellow African at a media interaction or during an interview – more than anything else.
There is little solid evidence that actually proves that the two are dating – as the two haven’t ever been spotted together in a public place either.
What are Mane’s links to South African presenter Carol Tshabalala?
Even though his relationship with Melissa Reddy was never really confirmed, Mane did have a fling with one South African sports presenter in Carol Tshabalala. A reporter for South Africa channel Kaya 959, Tshabalala actually had legit evidence of having a pretty solid relationship with Mane.
There are a lot of pictures of her being extremely close to Mane, which seemingly confirms that the two were pretty close together at one point. In February 2022, Tshabalala posted a picture that confirmed her engagement – but did not confirm who the lucky man was.
She just referred to her partner as ‘Mr S’ which has sparked rumors that Tshabalala has been engaged to Mane. However, the Senegalese winger is yet to actually confirm that and there is no real evidence that the two got engaged together – even though they might’ve been in a relationship for a point of time.
For the time being, it’s clear that Mane is single, unmarried and only focused on succeeding in his football career – while also being a good role model for his fans with his charitable efforts and humble personality.
