Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Sadio Mane may make his return to the squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Burnley.
The Senegal international recently celebrated becoming Africa Cup of Nations champion and was not involved in the 2-0 win over Leicester City on Thursday night.
Mane is now back in the country, though, and Klopp has urged caution over his return but has confirmed that he may be able to play a part at Turf Moor.
“Will Sadio be available? We have to find out. Sadio will come [in] this morning for training and I assume he will be in full training and then we make a decision after that on how he feels and all that stuff,” Klopp told reporters at his pre-match press conference.
“He will probably still be emotionally high-flying, but physically we have to see how intense the last few days were for him.”
Klopp did welcome Mohamed Salah back to the team off the bench against the Foxes, as Diogo Jota‘s brace ensured a comfortable win over Brendan Rodgers‘s side.
