Liverpool's Mane has operation on thumb injury

Firmino

Liverpool released a statement yesterday announcing Mane had undergone surgery on a hand.

The worldwide break was not kind to Liverpool, with key first-team players Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita all picking up injuries while away with their countries.

Koeman later revealed that the medical staff of Liverpool and the Dutch national team had reached an agreement for Van Dijk to only play in the UEFA Nations League clash with Germany.

Naby Keita, however, will miss out after suffering an injury whilst playing for Guinea this week.

Virgil van Dijk is "not anxious at all" about Mohamed Salah's worrying form for Liverpool in the ongoing campaign.

The 26-year-old returned to Merseyside for surgery, putting him in doubt for this weekend's Premier League trip to Huddersfield Town.

Mane's participation is less likely after he sustained a broken thumb, and hamstring problems for midfield duo James Milner and Keita could also keep them sidelined.




"It's too much in that competition: "Proper games, real opponents, it is better than having any friendlies", Klopp said on Friday ahead of English title-contenders Liverpool's match away to Huddersfield.

"I have known Jurgen long enough, I know he loves to use smokescreens", Wagner told a news conference on Thursday.

"Don't believe everything you read - I expect that most of his players will be on the grass on Saturday". "Before I came to Liverpool, I saw him on TV and I liked him a lot", said Fabinho, as quoted by the Daily Star.

Huddersfield's form is a stark contrast as they seek a first win to potentially climb out of the relegation zone.

"Now we have a great opportunity, a wonderful game in front of our fans against a very strong side, where we can hopefully perform at the same level [as our last game]".
