Loads of Liverpool fans reacted in delight to the news that star man Sadio Mane is back in full training with Everton on the horizon.
The Senegal international was recently ruled out after testing positive for COVID-19, which saw him miss his side’s 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa before the international break. But talkSPORT revealed that he has now returned to Melwood and is taking part in sessions with his teammates.
Over the years, the 28-year-old has been one of the Reds’ most crucial players following his £34m move from Southampton in 2016, finding the net 84 times in 174 appearances (as per TransferMarkt) and entering the club’s top 20 all-time goalscorers.
Anfield legend Jamie Carragher didn’t hold back on what he thought about Mane, declaring his love for Jurgen Klopp’s number ten during the title celebrations in July.
Will Sadio Mane be the difference against Everton?
Understandably, supporters erupted with joy once discovering the news that Mane is back, with one of their key assets back now ready for their rivals across Stanley Park, who are currently top of the Premier League.
