Sadio Mane returns to Liverpool early from Senegal duty after he ‘slightly felt his old injury’

Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of key man Sadio Mane after he returned early from international duty.

The 25-year-old reported a minor issue with the hamstring injury from which he has just recovered after playing for Seneral in Friday’s win over South Africa, a result which secured World Cup qualification.

“Following the match, South Africa against Senegal Friday, November 10, 2017 in Polokwane, the player Sadio Mane slightly felt his old injury,” said a statement from the Senegal Football Federation.

“After consultations between the medical staff of the national team of Senegal and Liverpool it was decided by mutual agreement to make him available to his club to continue treatment until full recovery.”

Mane was sidelined for five matches with a hamstring injury, only returning to action in the Premier League win over West Ham on November 4.

Jurgen Klopp will now hope his setback is only a minor one, ahead of Saturday’s visit of Southampton.
