Sadio Mane returns to Liverpool after suffering hamstring injury recurrence with Senegal

Sadio Mane returns to Liverpool after suffering hamstring injury recurrence with Senegal

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

The full statement read, via the Liverpool Echo: "The Senegalese Football Federation informs the national and global opinion that, following the match South Africa against Senegal on Friday, November 10, 2017, in Polokwane, the player Sadio Mane was slightly felt (sic) from his old injury".

Mane has now returned to Melwood where he will be assessed by Liverpool's medical staff to determine the full extent of the injury.

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.

"Obviously it is a concern that the hamstring injury is again on the agenda and it will be critical for us to monitor and manage that in the coming days", the German told his club's official website.

"It should not be forgotten in Liverpool, either, how important it is to Sadio that he represents his country whenever he is fit enough to do so".

Liverpool face Southampton on Saturday, but the more testing challenge will come in the following week when they face a hard trip to Sevilla in the Champions League and the visit of Chelsea to Anfield.

Mane played 77 minutes against the Hammers, whom they beat 4-1 and he looked back to full fitness despite returning after a two-week layoff.
