Liverpool's Sadio Mane undergoes surgery on broken left thumb
Liverpool's Sadio Mane has undergone an operation after breaking his left thumb while on international duty with Senegal.
Mane returned to Liverpool early after breaking the thumb during Senegal's 3-0 win over Sudan on Saturday and underwent surgery on Wednesday.
"The surgery, conducted at a northwest hospital and supervised by club medics, was successful," Liverpool said in a statement.
Mane was one of four Liverpool players to give Jurgen Klopp an injury scare over the international break.
Mohamed Salah (groin) and Virgil van Dijk (ribs) withdrew from their national teams early, and Naby Keita suffered a muscular injury during Guinea's African Nations Cup qualifier with Rwanda on Tuesday.
