FA Cup: Klopp gives update on Mane’s injury ahead of Shrewsbury trip

ENGLAND – Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, has said Sadio Mane suffered a “muscle tweak, during their 2-1 win at Wolves on Thursday night.

Mane was forced off in the first half of the Premier League clash, after trying to link up with Mohammed Salah for a counter-attack.

There were no obvious signs he was in serious pain, as he disappeared down the tunnel.

“Sadio is a real shame he had to go off. Hopefully it’s not too bad -just a muscle tweak but we will see tomorrow,” Klopp told the post-match press conference.

He added that he expects to be without the Senegal forward for games against West Ham and Southampton next week.

“It’s difficult enough. Sunday Shrewsbury, Wednesday West Ham, Saturday Southampton. That’s tough,” Klopp said.
