There is no report of anyone being harmed in the house located in Malika, but it was stated that Mane's £26,000 SUV car was completely trashed as his relatives fled for the safety of their lives.

Many fans were of the opinion that the striker deliberately missed the spot kick so as for him to return to England to help his club Liverpool.

A source told The Sun that the ugly scenario has been reported to the police.

“Mane’s uncle and his family have reported these persons to the police. We just hope they will get the punishment they deserve.” the source explained

Liverpool splashed out £34 million for the winger last summer and he has scored 11 goals in 23 appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side so far this season, including two against Spurs on Sunday, February, 12, 2017.
