Liverpool Blow! African Star Faces Spell On The Sidelines

Liverpool have been dealt a huge blow following news that influential forward Sadio Mane is facing up to six months on the sidelines after he picked up a hamstring injury while on international duty with Senegal.

The 25-year old star picked up the injury during his country’s 2-0 win over hosts Cape Verde on Saturday.

Mane is likely to miss big league clashes against Manchester United and Tottenham in addition to his club’s double header against Maribor in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

Mane, who has scored three goals in five league appearances, faces race against time to be fit for Senegal’s crucial double header against South Africa next month.
