Liverpool are so desperate to keep Sadio Mane healthy that we’ve sent a club physio on international duty with him to Senegal!
The Telegraph state that Scott McAuley is with our superstar winger and will work closely with him, alongside the Senegalese medics, to ensure his full fitness upon return.
Senegal have two fixtures with South Africa in which to navigate to qualify for next summer’s World Cup.
Last time Mane went to play for his country, he came back with a hamstring injury, and it’s clear the club have little faith in Senegal to maintain his health.
Mane returned to action against West Ham this weekend just gone and put in a destructive performance which featured two brilliant assists for his partner in crime Mo Salah.
Liverpool’s best chance of success this term is keeping the dynamic duo fit and on form – as no matter what defensive problems we have – our first-choice frontline can ‘score more’.
