- Senegalese striker Sadio Mane has undergone a successful surgery on his knee
- The Liverpool star was operated in London on April 11, 2017
- He is expected to be out of the rest of the season
Liverpool striker Sadio Mane has undergone a successful surgery on his knee in London on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 and was forced to walk with crutches after the surgical operation.
On April 1, the Senegalese international suffered a meniscus damage in his left knee after colliding with Baines in Liverpool's 3-1 win over Everton and was forced out of the encounter.
The 25-year-old is expected to miss the rest of the season which is a big blow for Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool had originally hoped that the winger would avoid the need for surgery but after a series of scans, there was no other option than for him to go under the knife.
NAIJ.com can report that Mane will now miss Liverpool's remaining six Premier League games starting with the trip to West Brom on Sunday, April 16, 2017.
