Liverpool have announced that Sadio Mane could miss up to six weeks after picking up an injury on international duty.
Mane was taken off late on in Senegal’s 2-0 World Cup qualifying victory against Cape Verde on Saturday.
Liverpool recently confirmed that the winger’s injury will keep him out for well over a month.
“Sadio Mane is facing a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a hamstring injury on international duty, Liverpool FC can confirm,” a club statement read.
“The winger was substituted 89 minutes into Senegal’s 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over the Cape Verde Islands on Saturday.
“And it has now been confirmed that he picked up an injury during that fixture that could keep him out of action for up to six weeks.”
The first game Mane will sit out is Manchester United’s visit to Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
