Sa­dio Mane to miss Liver­pool’s HK trip

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Sene­galese star Sa­dio Mane will miss Liver­pool’s pre-sea­son tour­na­ment in Hong Kong as he con­tin­ues his re­cov­ery from a knee in­jury, Reds man­ager Jur­gen Klopp said yes­ter­day. The 25-year-old for­ward, who scored 13 Premier League goals for Liver­pool last sea­son after join­ing from Southamp­ton, is mak­ing good progress but has yet to re­sume full train­ing. Mane suf­fered the knee in­jury in the Mersey­side derby with Ever­ton on April 1 and sub­se­quently un­der­went surgery. “He is re­ally, re­ally good. He is close; he is clos­ing on com­ing back to team train­ing,” Klopp told liv­er­poolfc.com. “In this mo­ment we think it will be when we are in Asia, so then it makes no sense to take him to Asia be­cause he needs to then do the first steps in kind of team train­ing. “We will see how we can do it; maybe the U23s will be here, so when he can start (train­ing) then we can use this op­por­tu­nity, but we have to wait. “On Tues­day morn­ing he was part of the run­ning, so he is first-team train­ing if you want and that looked re­ally good. —AFP
