Sadio Mane says he is finding it tough watching from the sidelines as Liverpool’s results suffer in his absence.
Liverpool have not won a game since Sadio Mane was sent off for catching Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson with a high boot in the Premier League.
They drew 1-1 with Burnley at Anfield in the Premier League and were bundled out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night as they lost 2-0 at Leicester.
Unlike Jurgen Klopp who has to sit through it all, one man who cannot bear to watch is Sadio Mane himself.
He told ESPN: “It is not an easy time for me because I would love to play all the time and help my team-mates. It’s bad, but I have to accept the suspension and wait until my comeback.
“I’m a football player and I love to play and score, to give us goals for the team. The suspension is part of football and I just have to accept it and move forward and be ready for my next game, which is coming soon.”
Mane has served two games of a three-match suspension and the last one is Liverpool’s return to Leicester in the league on Saturday.
