Sadio Mane will miss Liverpool’s Community Shield match against Manchester City as Jurgen Klopp confirmed he is to return from vacation on August 5.

The Reds star has gone through a busy summer, finishing out his club season with Liverpool on June 1 with a Champions League triumph over Tottenham.

He then joined up with Senegal for the Africa Cup of Nations, where he guided his nation to the tournament final, losing to Algeria 1-0 in the decider.

Mane is not alone in his absence, as Roberto Firmino, Alisson Becker, who both featured for Brazil’s Copa America winning side, and Mohamed Salah, who starred for Egypt at AFCON, are also on extended breaks.

However, with Mane’s tournament ending the latest – the final was July 19 – Liverpool manager Klopp confirmed he will return the first Monday of August.

Doing so means he will miss the Community Shield against City the day before and will have less than a week to prepare for the Premier League opener against top-flight returnees Norwich City.

“He is in good shape,” Klopp told the club’s official website

“Obviously they had a celebration in Senegal and I’m happy about that because it showed that they respect the competition and saw the second place as a success, which is nice.

“He is now on holiday, not the longest one – he will be back on August 5, after the Manchester City game. That means he had two weeks. There is four or five days to prepare for Norwich, 10 days for Chelsea [in the UEFA Super Cup].”

The club will be hoping Mane’s busy summer will not take too much out of him after he enjoyed a stellar 2018-19 campaign for the Reds.

He finished with 22 goals in the Premier League, which saw him end level with team-mate Salah and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the Golden Boot. (Goal)
