31-year-old Sadio Mané marries ‘long-term girlfriend’ who is 18 years old

Al Nassr and Senegal star Sadio Mané, 31, married his long-term girlfriend Aisha Tamba, 18, during a private wedding ceremony in Dakar, Senegal.

The wedding reportedly took place on Sunday.

Needless to say, the 13-year age-gap between the couple has raised some eyebrows along with the “long-term girlfriend” part. According to the outlet Pulse Sports, the pair met when she was 16 years old and was “long intended” for Mané.

The age of consent in Senegal is 16.

Pulse Sports also reported that the Senegal star was paying for her school and helping take care of her family.

Tamba lives a private life and checks Mané’s desired boxed of being off social media. In a 2022 interview Mané stated that point.

"I've seen a lot of girls asking me why I am not married, but sorry you might be wasting your time," Mané said. "The woman I marry will not be on social networks.

"I want to marry a woman who respects God and prays well. Everyone has their own way of making their choice of love."

Photos of the wedding were posted by an account “magvision_evens_officiel.”
