Liverpool Football Club are sweating over how long Sadio Mané could be out of action as a result of the knee injury he sustained against Everton at the weekend.
The Senegal international fell awkwardly after a challenge with Everton’s Leighton Baines and was unable to continue. After the game he said he felt “ok” but the knee has since swollen considerably making it difficult for the Reds to determine the extent of the problem.
There is no suggestion Mané has damaged his anterior cruciate ligament but Liverpool officials are refusing to rule out the possibility that he may need surgery.
Information is limited because the club itself does not yet know the situation but as soon as we pick up some credible news, we will, of course, keep you posted. We recommend you give us a follow on Twitter and Facebook for additional snippets until then.
