Liverpool Dealt Injury Blow As Star Taken To Hospital Following Training Incident
Liverpool have been handed an injury scare after Sadio Mane was taken to hospital with a shoulder injury following a collision in training
Liverpool have been handed an injury scare after Sadio Mane was taken to hospital with a shoulder injury following a collision in training, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Mane has made an impressive start to life at Liverpool following his big-money move from Southampton this summer with the attacker playing a key role in the Merseysiders 4-3 win over Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.
It will therefore come as a big concern to Jurgen Klopp that Mane has been rushed to the Spire hospital for scans on his shoulder following a collision during training at Melwood this afternoon.
The Senegal international will undergo further assessment to determine the full extent of the injury but it would be a huge blow for Liverpool if the pacey attacker was to be ruled out so early in his career at the club.
Klopp will be be sweating on the results of the scans and Mane is now considered as a major doubt for Saturday’s trip to Turf Moor to take on newly-promoted Burnley.
It’s the latest injury set-back for Liverpool with Loris Karius, Mamadou Sakho, Lucas Leiva, Joe Gomez and Sheyi Ojo all currently on the sidelines through injury while Daniel Sturridge is still looking to regain full fitness following a hip complaint that he suffered in pre-season.
James Milner also missed the win over Arsenal with a heel injury but is back in training and the versatile Englishman is expected to replace Alberto Moreno at left-back if passed fit to face Burnley this weekend.
