Sadio Mane Returns to Liverpool FC After Re-Injuring Hamstring



Sadio Mane has returned home from international duty with Senegal after suffering another recurrence of the hamstring injury that has kept him out of action for the past month. Mane will be assessed when he returns to the club’s Melwood training facility.

The Senegal Football Federation released a statement that reads: “Following the match, South Africa against Senegal Friday, Nov. 10, 2017 in Polokwane, the player Sadio Mane slightly felt his old injury.”

“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 starred for Senegal in their 2-0 win over South Africa, which ensured their place at next summer’s World Cup in Russia. Mane made a surprise return to action in the Reds’ last Premier League fixture, a 4-1 rout over West Ham United at London Stadium.

Before that match, the winger’s hamstring issue had kept him out for the previous five matches. It remains to be seen if Mane will be fit enough to face his former team this weekend. Liverpool host Southampton on Saturday, and no doubt LFC Manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that this latest setback for Sadio Mane turns out to only be something very minor.
