Mane, who now plays for Al Nassr, and Henderson, who recently signed with Al Ettifaq managed by Steven Gerrard, were spotted sharing a friendly moment together. The viral video shows an excited Mane warmly embracing his former Liverpool teammate.
Mane and Henderson were key players for Liverpool, helping them win the UEFA Champions League in 2019 as well as the Premier League and FA Cup trophies.
Mane has already made his debut for Al Nassr, assisting them in reaching the semi-finals of the Arab Club Champions Cup alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. Henderson is yet to play for Al Ettifaq following his move from Liverpool.
Another former Liverpool star now in Saudi Arabia is Fabinho, who signed for Al-Ittihad this summer.
