Sadio Mane's uncle says he fears for his family's safety following his nephew's missed penalty at the Africa Cup of Nations, which saw Senegal crash out at the quarter-final stage.
Sana Toure said that a 4x4 bought for him by his nephew, who is Africa's most expensive player, was vandalised and that his home was targeted.
Speaking to local media, he said:
The day after the Lions [Senegal] were knocked out, some people with bad intentions wanted to ransack my home in Malika. It's thanks to my neighbours, and the intervention of prominent locals.... that the worst was avoided."
On the pitch, the £36m ($45m) Liverpool striker appears to have put his Afcon woes behind him, scoring a double to see off top-four rivals Tottenham this weekend.
