Sadio Mane will return to full-scale training at Liverpool this week.
Mane is set to hand the club a major fitness boost by returning to full training next week and hopes to declare his fitness ahead of the start of the new season, says the Mirror.
Mane was one of the star performers for Jurgen Klopp’s side in his first season at Anfield, but his season was prematurely ended when he was forced to undergo knee surgery.
The Senegal international sustained the injury during the Merseyside derby win over Everton at Anfield.
The 25-year-old has been working hard through the summer and has spent considerable time at the club’s Melwood training base to ensure his recovery plan is on schedule.
