Liverpool's Sadio Mane breaks hand becomes latest injury concern for Jurgen Klopp

Mohamed Salah

Early indications are that the injury is not serious, but it can not be assessed until Mané returns to Liverpool's training ground at Melwood, which will most likely be on Wednesday morning.

And following his return to Liverpool, the pacy winger has immediately gone under the knife in a local hospital.

The 30-year-old was handed his 22nd global cap on Tuesday as Belgium drew 1-1 in a friendly with the Netherlands, with Koeman deciding to rest Real Madrid stopper Thibaut Courtois.

The Reds have confirmed the procedure was successful after Liverpool medics supervised the surgery.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Liverpool believe it is too early to determine whether any of the injured players are doubts for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield Town.




Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore insists the club are back where they belong and his task now is to ensure manager Jurgen Klopp gets the funds he needs to keep them there.

This boost will be a relief for Klopp after Sadio Mane became the latest Liverpool player struck down by injury on worldwide duty.

The Mirror says Keita pulled up with a hamstring injury during Guinea's Africa Cup of Nations tie in Rwanda.

Mohamed Salah had to be withdrawn during his side's 4-1 win against eSwatini last Friday.

Defender Virgil van Dijk was withdrawn from the Netherlands squad for Tuesday's 1-1 friendly draw with Belgium as he was still feeling the effects of a rib injury that he suffered when playing for the club against Southampton last month.
