With an annual salary of $10.2 million annually, he could afford whatever he wants. However, he is using guess what, a cracked iPhone and living a very 'quiet' life.

And unlike most of his colleagues, he doesn't drive expensive and flamboyant, and he is not living outlandishly. Indeed, many a celebrity have a lot to learn from his humble lifestyle.

Recently, fans were shocked when they saw him using his cracked iPhone. After they expressed their shock to him, here what he told them.

"Why would I want 10 Ferraris, 20 diamond watches and two jet planes? I starved, worked in the fields, played barefoot and I didn't go to school. Now I can help people. I prefer to build schools and give poor people food or clothing. I have built schools and a stadium, provided clothes, shoes, and food for people in extreme poverty.

"In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all people from a very poor Senegalese region in order to contribute to their family economy. I do not need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, trips, and even planes. I prefer that my people receive some of what life has given me."

The 30 year-old Liverpool attacker and Senegalese International is known for his dribbling and scoring skills and is rated among the best players in the world.
