LIVERPOOL MANAGER JURGEN KLOPP CONFIRMS SADIO MANE NEEDS 'SURGERY' AND HIS 'SEASON IS OV
The Liverpool star, 24, was pictured in a knee brace days after hobbling off during the 3-1 victory over rivals Everton.
‘Sadio Mane needs surgery – we’re not 100 per cent sure when it will happen. It’s clear – [his] season is over,’ Jurgen Klopp said ahead of the trip to Stoke City on Saturday.
Klopp shared more positive news regarding England internationals Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson, although both remain on the sidelines.
‘Lallana is much better but it not an option yet. Henderson is on a good path, but we don’t know when he will be back in training,’ Klopp added.
Liverpool travel to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke after dropping two points at home to Bournemouth on Wednesday.
