Sadio Mane to be tested after injury, says Klopp.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Sadio Mane’s fitness will be assessed when he returns to England after being released from international duty with Senegal.The former Southampton man is due to report back at Liverpool after he “slightly felt his old injury,” the Senegalese Football Federation said.Mane missed five club matches with a hamstring injury before making a surprise return in the 4-1 victory at West Ham earlier this month.The 25 year old midfielder then played 90 minutes on Friday as he helped Senegal beat South Africa 2-0 to secure World Cup qualification.“Specifically on him returning to Melwood early to be with us; obviously it is a concern that the hamstring injury is again on the agenda and it will be critical for us to monitor and manage that in the coming days.”Speaking to the official Liverpool website, Klopp added: “At this stage we haven’t seen Sadio yet to properly assess the extent, but what is clear is that we will have to stay on top of this for the rest of the week and make sure we are careful in how we look after him.“There has been really strong communication between ourselves and the Senegal team management to ensure the player is properly protected and looked after.“We respect how important he is for Senegal and therefore it must always be the case that they get to make the decision when he is under their care. “It should not be forgotten in Liverpool either how important it is to Sadio that he represents his country whenever he is fit enough to do so.
