Liverpool have been dealt a huge injury with the news that Sadio Mane has once again suffered an injury on international duty.
The winger has suffered a recurrence if his hamstring problem that he picked up on the last international break just over a month ago. He only just returned to action just over a week ago in Liverpool’s 4-1 win at West Ham.
He subsequently jetted off for duty with Senegal, where he set up Diafra Sakho’s goal in the 2-0 win over South Africa, but has now returned to Liverpool for treatment after complaining of discomfort in his hamstring.
A statement from the Senegalese FA reads:
“Following the South Africa against Senegal match on Friday, November 10 in Polokwane, the player Sadio Mane slightly felt his old injury.
“After consultations between the medical staff of the Senegal national team and Liverpool, it was decided by mutual agreement to make him available to his club with a view to continuing treatment until full recovery.”
Liverpool will be hoping he can recover in time for Saturday’s home fixture against Southampton, although the length of his potential absence has not been disclosed yet.
