On Tuesday afternoon, Liverpool confirmed that the winger’s injury will sideline him for well over a month.

“Sadio Mane is facing a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a hamstring injury on international duty, Liverpool FC can confirm,” a club statement read.

The development is a significant blow to Liverpool’s aspirations in the Premier League and Champions League. Furthermore, Mane is an integral part of Jurgen Klopp’s forward play.

Also, the Reds are entering a crucial period of the season in which the games come thick and fast. Additionally, the first game Mane will miss is against Manchester at Anfield.

Last, Liverpool won just once in seven matches in all competitions while Mane was at the African Nations Cup in January.
