Liverpool Boss Jurgen klopp Has Revealed Mane Could Miss The Rest Of The Season

Jurgen klopp has revealed Saido Mane Could miss rest of season

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool winger Saido Mane may be out for the rest of the season following the knee injury he sustained against Everton.

The Senegalese fell awkwardly in the Merseyside derby win and in the process twisted his knee, he was replaced by Divock Origi who scored the third goal in the 3-1 win to secure the three points.

The club don't know how serious the injury he sustained, the swelling is yet to come down result from a scan won't really be accurate.

Mane will definitely miss wednesday's clash against Bournemouth at Anfield.

Klopp told Reporters : “It’s not 100 per cent clear. We had an assessment and a scan, but have to wait a little bit until the knee is not that swollen anymore.

“The only thing I can say for sure is that he will not be available for tomorrow. All the rest, we just have to see.

“It’s not very positive, we have to say it like this, but we cannot say what it is exactly. We have to wait.”

When asked if it is possible Mane won't play again this season He said : “Unfortunately, that is possible, but I cannot say it now, why should I say it when I don’t know.

“It is possible. When the knee is swollen you have to wait for the final assessment until it is not swollen anymore.

“My job is to find solutions and I work on solutions all the time.

“We have 59 points, we are in a good position in the table. A few teams have played lesser games than we have, but they cannot win them all, that is for sure because a few of them play against each other. We are in a good position and I really want to use this position.

With Mane out and Daniel Sturridge Back in training though not fully fit, Klopp might turn to Divock Origi to replace the pacy winger after he scored against Everton on saturday few minutes after he replaced Mane.

With just 8 games remaining for Liverpool, his replacement and teammates will have to step-up and secure Champions League qualification for the club.
