Liverpool fans have been rejoicing about the fact that winger Sadio Mane has resumed full training.
The Senegalese superstar has been out of action for the past couple of weeks after picking up a hamstring injury against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The 27-year-old missed the recent victories over West Ham United and Southampton, but two comfortable victories meant the Reds didn’t miss him.
It will have been an opportunity for Mane to recharge his batteries having played a great deal of football over the past 12 months.
The star hardly had a pre-season having been on AFCON duty, and the ace had featured in all but one Premier League and Champions League games before his injury at Wolves.
Mane – joined in his return to training by James Milner – could now return to the starting XI for the weekend game against Norwich City, with Atletico Madrid lying in wait in Europe the following week.
He will obviously be monitored throughout the week, but with Liverpool a staggering 22 points clear at the top of the league, it would perhaps be surprising to see Mane risked against the relegation-threatened Canaries.
Liverpool fans react
Liverpool fans were obviously delighted as pictures emerged of the world-class winger back in action at Melwood:
