The 26-year-old forward, who grew up in Bambali in the West African country, made the generous gesture before the Reds’ clash with 12-time winners Real Madrid on Saturday.

He said:

There are 2,000 in the village. I bought 300 Liverpool jerseys to send to the people in the village, so the fans can wear to watch the final.

My mum and my uncle, they are all going to be watching.

Nobody in the village will work this day. I will be going back in the summer after the World Cup and hopefully I will be showing everyone a [winners’] medal.”
