Liverpool forward Sadio Mane vows to return 'even better than before'

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane vows to return 'even better than before'

Liverpool have a suffered a major blow with news injured Sadio Mane has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Mane opened the scoring early on in the clash with Liverpool's city rivals but limped off the field 12 minutes into the second half following a challenge by Everton full-back Leighton Baines. A two-month recovery period is anticipated.

The 25-year-old has been one of the stars of Liverpool's season following his £36million transfer from Southampton last summer, with 13 goals and five assists in 27 Premier League appearances.

He is expected to be side-lined up eight weeks, which at least means he will return for the start of Liverpool's pre-season campaign, which begins in July.

Having pushed through his plan to expand the World Cup from 32 teams in January, Infantino is said to be supportive of joint bids. Technically FIFA will draw up a shortlist for its 211 member nations to vote in 2020 but that may end up being a formality.

'He will get a longer break and will be ready for next season, ' the German had said.

Losing Mane for the remainder of the campaign was a cruel blow for Liverpool, with the Senegal global having made a tremendous impact since his switch from Southampton.

Meanwhile, the club have announced they will play a post-season friendly in Australia.

But after fresh assessments it was decided that the best course of action for the long-term was an operation, meaning Mane will miss Liverpool's final six Premier League matches, starting with Sunday's trip to West Bromwich Albion.
