Liverpool's Mane suffers injury scare on Senegal duty

Philippe Coutinho

Dejan Lovren, Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne have all swapped the Saints for the Reds in recent seasons.

Mane was part of the Senegal side which sealed its place at the World Cup finals with a play-off win over South Africa in Polokwane last Friday.

Egypt have already qualified for next summer's finals in Russian Federation with Salah their two-goal hero in a dramatic win over Congo last month - and he instead remained in England to train with his club.

In a statement released by The Lions of Teranga, they announced that Mane would not feature because he had a "slightly feeling" of an old injury.

Sadio Mane has returned to Liverpool from worldwide duty after Senegal confirmed he has aggravated his hamstring injury.

Mane will now miss the dead rubber match with South Africa, though it is currently unknown whether the injury has flared up to an extent that it will keep him out of action once more.

A statement reads: "The Senegalese Football Federation informs the national and worldwide 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".

"First and foremost, I have to say big congratulations to Senegal on the achievement of qualifying for the World Cup; this is fantastic news for their country and the players - Sadio included", said Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to the official website.

"There has been really strong communication between ourselves and the Senegal team management to ensure the player is properly protected and looked after".
