Liverpool fear Mane could miss rest of season with knee injury

Date Posted,April 3, 2017

Liverpool are concerned Sadio Mane’s season could be over.

The Senegalese winger limped off during Saturday’s Merseyside derby with a knee problem, after a challenge with Leighton Baines.

He insisted he was OK after the game but Jurgen Klopp ruled him out of the clash with Bournemouth.

Mane underwent a scan on Sunday but his knee remains considerably swollen.

And it is feared he may not play any part in the season run-in, reports the Mail.

Mane is not on crutches and there is no suggestion he has damaged his cruciate ligament.

Jurgen Klopp will hope the fears are not realised, with Liverpool already missing Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana.

The pair have been sent to the States as they bid to come back from foot and thigh problems.
