Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has indicated they still await the extent of the injury suffered by Saido Mane in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Everton.
The Senegalese winger opened the scoring at Anfield sparking the Reds to a 3-1 win over their city rivals but at the early stages of the second half, he was substituted for Divock Origi due to injury and ahead of Liverpool matchweek 31 tie against AFC Bournemouth, the German said it is “possible” the Senegal forward could be ruled out for the rest of the Premier League season.
Mane, 24 joined Liverpool from Southampton in a deal worth over £34m and has been a starman for the Anfield faithfuls and most papers claim he might miss the rest of the season but Klopp says; “It is not 100% clear. We have to wait a bit.”
In his presser ahead of the tight game against Bournemouth who defeated the Reds 4-3 at the reverse fixture after Liverpool has taken a 3-1 lead said they await the extent of Mane’s injury to see if he will miss the rest of the season or not. He is quoted as saying;
“Unfortunately it is possible. But why should I say that now?
“The only thing I can say for sure is he will not be available for tomorrow. The knee is swollen and we have to wait for the final assessment.”
Liverpool are without Adam Lallana who is ruled out for a month after suffering an injury in the international break but can welcome Daniel Sturridge back from injury.
