Carol Tshabalala is not engaged to Sadio Mane

In recent weeks South African sports broadcaster, producer and voice-over artist Carol Tshabalala has continuously headlined on social media mostly because of her rumoured relationship with renowned Senegalese and Liverpool FC player Sadio Mane. A few weeks ago “Simply K” as she affectionately known as took to her Instagram account where she went to share that she was off the market after her mystery boyfriend popped the question.


Many football fans on social media have since went to assume that the 39 year old Soweto born beauty is engaged to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winning captain as they were captured one time too many in the past looking cosy.

As of late Carol Tshabalala recently took to Instagram to show off her mystery boyfriend where they were captured during a romantic getaway at Mdluli Safari Lounge at the Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga. Taking to the popular platform the Supersport TV presenter decided to hide his identity with an emoji and from the looks of things it is safe to say that he is definitely not the Liverpool FC talisman.

From the shared pictures on Instagram it is evident that her mystery man has a tattoo on his right arm and Sadio Mane is one of the few footballers in modern football who does not have ink on his body because of his islamic religion as it is prohibited to do so. Furthermore we can also safely see that Carol Tshabalala’s mystery man is cleanly shaved on his head while the Liverpool FC winger always has his signature haircut.

In addition we can also see that the mystery man in question does not have the physique but mostly the dark skin tone of Sadio Mane.
