Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has confirmed that Sadio Mané’s season is over.
The highly-rated Reds’ winger sustained a knee injury against Everton on Saturday and surgery looks inevitable after he damaged a meniscus in his left knee.
Speaking this afternoon, Klopp said: “I am pretty sure Sadio will need surgery but I am not 100% sure when it will happen but then it is clear ‘season over’.
“That is what I half-expected when I saw him after the game. I felt he was lucky that not more happened but we are close enough to the end of the season that it will be pretty much impossible to play again this season.
“He will get a longer break and will be ready for next season. That is the only good news.”
