Senegalese Footballer, Saido Mane Buys Football Club in France

Senegal and Al Nassr star Sadio Mane is now a bonafide football club owner.
This comes after he bought a football club in France, joining the likes of David Beckham, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes.
According to ESPN, Mane bought French fourth division club Bourges Foot 18.

Following the completion of the deal Mane posted a video message in which he said: “We’ve been working with the city for the past three years. We’re here to nurture and organise the club. The challenge is immense, but if the people of Bourges remain involved, I’m confident we can achieve our goals. I believe I’ll be visiting Bourges very soon.”
The club are located 250 kilometres from Paris in central France, but they’ve never played higher than the French second tier (as Bourges 18).
The club currently sit second bottom in Group B of the Championnat National. They were only formed two years ago following a merger between two clubs in the region.
It also boasts teams like Cannes, who have endured a steep decline since giving French great Zinedine Zidane his professional debut.
Mane joined Al Nassr after struggling at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
He had a memorable spell at Liverpool where he won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
