Liverpool boss Klopp receives Mane injury update

Liverpool striker Sadio Mane has assured manager Jurgen Klopp he's avoided serious injury.

The Senegal winger was substituted midway through the second half of Saturday's 2-0 win over Namibia, prompting speculation about his fitness.

Jurgen Klopp is understood to have called the 24-year-old the following day to check on his status and was given a positive response and Mane was back in for training and recovery at Melwood on Monday, reports PA Sport.

That was welcome news ahead of the visit of Premier League champions Leicester this weekend for the first home match of the season, when Anfield's new Main Stand will be officially used for the first time.
