Sadio Mane

Sadio Mané will undergo surgery on his left knee in London tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Liverpool winger is expected to be laid up for around 2 months as a result of the operation which is to repair a damaged meniscus.

Liverpool had hoped that surgery wouldn’t be required and held off for as a long as possible to see if the initial swelling would go down but unfortunately, the decision was made for them and he will now have to undergo the knife.

The news is a huge blow for the Reds and the only positive, if you can see one, is that he should be really fresh for the start of the 2017-18 campaign whereas that may not have been the case had surgery been delayed and he had played on.
