Sadio Mane suffers injury ahead of Huddersfield game, Liverpool fans react

International breaks during the season are rarely warmly welcomed by fans due to concerns over the fitness of their players.

Plenty of Premier League stars have been in action for their countries over the past week, either competing in the UEFA Nations League or in friendlies.

Liverpool have had a handful of first-team personnel away on international duty, but some have had injury scares.

Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk have been in the headlines for potential injury blows, and now Sadio Mane has picked up a problem.

According to Liverpool Echo journalist Ian Doyle, it is believed that the attacker has broken his thumb while playing for Senegal.

It is unsure whether Mane’s availability for Saturday’s Premier League game against Huddersfield Town will be affected.

On Twitter, plenty of Liverpool fans reacted to the news, with some venting their anger about international breaks, while others believe that the nature of the injury means that Mane will be available to play this weekend.
