Sadio Mane Latest Victim of International Curse

Posted on 11. Oct, 2017 by in News

The curse of international football strikes again, with Sadio Mane the latest player to fall victim. Mane will be out of action for up to six weeks following a hamstring injury deep into the dying embers of  Senegal’s 2 – 0 qualifying stage win on Saturday.

The talisman, who has already missed three games this season due to suspension, will now miss games against Manchester United, Tottenham and both Champions League games to Maribor.

Further more, Senegal look to be without their star man for their curcial games against South Africa on both 10 and 14 November.

With the injury coming so late in the game, around 89 minutes to be exact, it will be a bitter p ill to swallow for Liverpool who faced a dogged time during Mane’s absences.

Having scored three goals in five appearances so far this season, Liverpool will host Manchester United without one of their star assets. The game can be seen on Sky Sports, but for those still looking to find tickets, they can do so via www.footballticketpad.com
