SADIO MANE has revealed that footballers who live glam lifestyles "irritate" him.
The modest Liverpool forward, 29, revealed his gripe in an interview with French publication, L'Equipe.
He said: "I don't want to give the impression that I'm a very critical person, but it's true that there are values in football that irritate me a little compared to the upbringing I had.
"But instead of criticising, I prefer to distance myself. The main thing is not to change, and I believe I didn't. For a boy who comes from a small town, it's a great victory."
When he was quizzed if he'd like to live a life like Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar, he was definitive in his response.
Mane laughed: "No! I follow them on social networks and that's enough. I love the incredible life they lead, but I don't think it's for me."
