The Senegal man was injured while training with his country during the international break
Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has undergone surgery after breaking his thumb on international duty with Senegal.
The Reds’ forward could still feature in his side’s return to Premier League action at Huddersfield on Saturday, live on talkSPORT, although he is currently a doubt.
The Anfield club released a brief statement which confirmed the 26-year-old has had an operation on his hand to resolve the issue.
“Liverpool Football Club can confirm Sadio Mane today underwent a procedure on a hand injury sustained while on international duty with Senegal.
“The surgery, conducted at a north-west hospital and supervised by club medics, was successful.
“Mane’s recovery will be monitored over the next couple of days ahead of the Reds’ return to action at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.”
The forward was injured in a training session with Senegal that ruled him out of a match against Sudan.
He was not the only injury-hit Liverpool star during the international break as Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita all also endured problems.
