Liverpool

Reds boss reveals Mane return date

22nd July 2019, 04:50 by Michael Holland

Jurgen Klopp says Sadio Mane will only link up with the rest of the Liverpool squad after the Community Shield clash next month.

The Liverpool ace has been busy representing Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations and will be given extra time off after they made it all the way to the final.

Senegal were beaten 1-0 by Algeria in the final before they all returned to their homeland to acknowledge their efforts, before then jetting off on holiday to recover.

Klopp says he will be back with the rest of the squad on Monday August 5, just after the Wembley showdown with Manchester City, and days before the Premier League opener against Norwich City at Anfield.

"He is in good shape," Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com. "Obviously they had a celebration in Senegal and I'm happy about that because it showed that they respect the competition and saw the second place as a success, which is nice.

"He is now on holiday, not the longest one, he will be back on August 5, after the Manchester City game. That means he had two weeks. There is four or five days to prepare for Norwich, 10 days for Chelsea [in the UEFA Super Cup]."
