New Bayern Munich star Sadio Mane kicked off life in the Bundesliga with a debut goal, in a 6-1 win over Eintract Frankfurt.
But before the game had even started, the former Liverpool man had already left one of his opponents’ mascots completely starstruck.
During his six years at Anfield, Mane made a real name for himself, winning the Premier League, the Champions League, the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup.
Not to mention he scored the penalty that won his country, Senegal, the Africa Cup of Nations back in February.
It’s not surprising, then, that Bundesliga fans would have been excited to watch Mane in the flesh after he signed for German champions Bayern Munich.
And hilarious footage has shown that even Eintracht Frankfurt’s mascot couldn’t contain himself as the winger made his way towards him.
In a video posted on the Bundesliga’s Twitter account, the youngster is seen waiting in anticipation as Mane shook the Frankfurt players’ hands.
And his face was an absolute picture.
