After missing out on the PFA Player of the Year shortlist last week, the Teranga Lions star will be pleased to have made it into the team of the year.
That time is now and that team is nothing but fair, by our estimations.
Sports Mail's Alternative Team of the year also includes Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez.
And it looks like this.
The Professional Footballers' Association announced their best 11 of the season thus far on Thursday, and of the 11 players selected by position, Mane was placed within his favoured right wing role.
Premier League: David de Gea (Manchester United); Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur), David Luiz, Gary Cahill (both Chelsea), Danny Rose (Tottenham); N'Golo Kante (Chelsea), Dele Alli (Tottenham), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Sadio Mane (Liverpool); Harry Kane (Tottenham), Romelu Lukaku (Everton).
The remaining eight places are reserved for the two teams now battling it out for the title as the full-back positions are occupied by Tottenham Hotspur's Kyle Walker and Danny Rose, with an all-Chelsea centre-back pairing of David Luiz and Gary Cahill.
