Sadio Mane has rejoined Liverpool for team training ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Burnley.
The 29-year-old was named player of the tournament as Senegal lifted the Africa Cup of Nations – scoring the winning penalty in the final against Mohamed Salah‘s Egypt.
While Salah returned to action off the bench against Leicester City in midweek, Mane was granted more time to enjoy the celebrations in his homeland before returning to Merseyside.
Now, the ex-Southampton man has been pictured back out on the AXA pitches with his teammates, and he cut an enthusiastic figure to the camera before being embraced by Adrian.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Mane could come into contention for the trip to Turf Moor on Sunday, with the attacker aiming to build on a tally of eight goals from 20 Premier League games this season.
The Reds should also have Jordan Henderson back in the fold following his back problem and may therefore boast a fully-fit squad for the meeting with Sean Dyche‘s outfit.
