Mane causes Liverpool scare

Liverpool are reportedly sweating over the injury picked up by Sadio Mane playing in Senegal's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Namibia on Saturday.

Mane, who joined the Anfield based club in a £30m move from Southampton, was substituted after 66 minutes in the 2-0 win.

The 24-year-old, who has made a fine start to his career with Jurgen Klopp's side, was taken off with a suspected knee injury, with the Anfield fraternity praying that it was just a precautionary measure.

Klopp also revealed that the club have made special arrangements for Coutinho regarding his travel for international duty.

"I don’t get frustrated by things I cannot change. I don’t think any manager in this moment is happy about the international break," he told reporters.

"For Coutinho, he is coming back Thursday morning at 9am and only because we make a few special arrangements with flights otherwise he would come Thursday night so nobody wants this." he concluded.
