Liverpool: Sadio Mané to miss Community Shield clash with Manchester City

Christian Eriksen to Liverpool touted after Jurgen Klopp told to spend transfer budget

Liverpool, who ended last season as runners-up in the Premier League, are Community Shield finalists as City won both the league and the FA Cup.

Klopp says he will be back with the rest of the squad just after the Wembley showdown with Manchester City, and days before the Premier League opener against Norwich City at Anfield.

"A bespoke graphic across the front of the shirt - also in Tidepool, a colour reminiscent of the iconic Liver birds that sit atop the Royal Liver Building in the centre of the city - pays homage to the shape of Liverpool's street signs".

Speaking to the Reds' website, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Mane will miss the Community Shield but says he expects the 27-year old to be in contention for the start of the league campaign. "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".

We now know Sadio will be back on the fifth (of August) and we can prepare the Norwich game as well. That means he'll have two weeks. Tell Hivisasa and we will share with the world.

Sadio Mane was pivotal to Senegal team at the AFCON 2019 in which he scored one goal against Kenya's Harambee Stars on penalty spot at Group C final match, however, the first penalty saved by Patrick Matasi, Kenya's goalkeeper.

The Reds' No.10 finished last season as the top flight's leading goalscorer, along with Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
