Senegal boss provides injury update on Liverpool winger Sadio Mane

Senegal came up against Tongo at the Stade de Kegue earlier this week.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane started for Senegal in the aforementioned World Cup qualifier.

But, the 29-year-old was substituted 28 minutes into the match after looking in some discomfort.

However, Senegal boss Aliou Cisse has revealed that Mane's injury is not too serious. Cisse has further stated that the forward was taken off as a precaution.

The news in relation to Mane was provided by the Liverpool Echo and cited by Anfield Watch's Twitter account.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

It is great to hear that Mane's injury is not too serious. The winger has been in good form for Liverpool this season.

Mane has scored eight goals in 15 appearances. The 29-year-old is also averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.15 in the early stages of the 2021-22 club campaign.

Therefore, we don't want to see Mane sitting on the sidelines due to a serious injury. Only time will tell if the Senegal international has to miss a game or two due to the minor injury that he suffered earlier this week.
