“It would make me happy (if Sadio Mané equals his record). That means that Senegal would have four Ballons d’Or, that’s what you have to remember. Today, Sadio Mané is not in competition with El Hadji Diouf. He is in competition with Salah, Mahrez and the others. Dioufy said. And when asked if Sadio becomes the best player in Senegal’s history, Diouf answered with class.

 » That’s all I wish for her, he admits. As I usually say, El Hadji Diouf is from another era. We are not of the same generation, of the same era. The most important thing is that Senegal wins. Tomorrow we’ll see someone else. I want Sadio to win the Ballon d’Or three times and someone else who comes to win it four times or more. It’s like that. Today, if a Senegalese wins, everyone will benefit. »
