Sadio Mane Injury - Ice vs Ajax

Jurgen Klopp confirmed Sadio Mane did not sustain an injury against Ajax during their 1-0 on Wednesday night.

Liverpool supporters on social media reacted to Mane receiving treatment on his right knee after being substituted against the Dutch giants.

The Reds winger came off alongside and as the Reds led 1-0 with half an hour to go.

While there were no suggestions of an injury for the trio, Mane quietly made his way to the substitutes' bench before receiving treatment from the Reds backroom staff.

The forward was seen looking glum while icing his knee, which stirred worry among Liverpool supporters, who have already seen ruled out for the season alongside injuries to Thiago and Joel Matip this week.

Speaking after the game, Klopp insisted there's no lasting damage for Mane, who has been struggling with a dead leg over the last two weeks.

“Sadio has still for a few days had a dead leg,” Klopp said. “He deals with it in that area, that's the only thing.

“It is still painful but it's not a problem. When he doesn't play, he puts ice on it. That's it.”
