Sadio Mane to return to training within 10 days

Great news for all Liverpool fans, as our star forward Sadio Mane is set to return to training within 10 days after recovering from a knee injury.

Mane, 25, needed surgery and missed the final eight games of last season after he damaged cartilage in his left knee in a collision with Leighton Baines during a 3-1 win over Everton on April 1st.

He was sorely missed whilst he was at AFCON in January earlier in the season too, again highlighting his importance to Liverpool’s attack.

He is set to miss Liverpool’s opening pre-season friendlies. A Liverpool statement was released earlier stating Mané would be monitored and assessed by the club’s medical staff to ensure he returned in the best shape.

Senegal international Mane scored 13 goals in 27 Premier League games after signing from Southampton for £34m in June 2016.
