There’s suggestions that the injury which forced Sadio Mane to limp off for Senegal last night was a minor, thankfully, but this hasn’t stopped Liverpool fans all over cursing the painful international break – which has yet again caused us heartache.
Liverpool didn’t play a competitive game all summer, but the first international break, just three games into the new season – seems a more irritable wait. We’re just getting back into it; the team is shaping itself – then our players fly off around the world and pick up injuries.
One fan described it as ‘torturous’, which we think is pretty much spot on. It’s only Sunday, meaning we’re only halfway through!
@empireofthekop what have we done to anger the football gods? this is torture.

Let’s hope Sadio Mané is ok. I despise the international break, it always damages us
