Liverpool’s Mane Ready to Start UEFA Super Cup

Written by Our Correspondent

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane insists he will be ready to start Wednesday’s UEFA Super Cup clash with Chelsea.

Mane returned to training last Monday after being given a 16-day break following Senegal’s run to the Africa Cup of Nations final, where they were beaten 1-0 by Algeria.

The 27-year-old missed the whole of Liverpool’s pre-season campaign, including the penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester City in the Community Shield, but he was back as a second-half substitute against Norwich City.

After getting 16 minutes under his belt in the 4-1 win at Anfield, Mane vowed he is raring to go against Chelsea in Istanbul.

“I think I am ready. Tiredness I think is here [pointing to his head],” he said at a news conference on the eve of Wednesday’s match.

“For sure I have been playing for a long time. I don’t think I’ve had a holiday of more than 20 days in seven years.

“I’m used to it. For sure, I’m ready. I’m here. Let’s do it!”
