Sadio Mane injured ahead of Liverpool vs Manchester United match. Senegal
Liverpool have suffered a setback ahead of their crucial home fixture against Manchester United this weekend as their star player Sadio Mane picked up a hamstring injury in Senegal's 2-0 win over Cape Verde in their World cup qualifying campaign.
Sadio Mane is facing a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a hamstring injury on international duty, Liverpool FC can confirm.
The winger was substituted 89 minutes into Senegal's 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over the Cape Verde Islands on Saturday.
And it has now been confirmed that he picked up an injury during that fixture that could keep him out of action for up to six weeks.
Mane, whose lay-off will commence when Manchester United visit Anfield on Saturday, has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances this term.
This is another setback for Jurgen Klopp as he tries to get the Anfield giants firing again as they draw their last two competitive matches in the Champions League and Premier league respectively.
