The forward was named among FIFA's 30-man shortlist for the 2017 Ballon d'Or award on Monday, but will now face further time out for Liverpool having already missed three games through suspension following his red card against Manchester City.

Mane picked up the problem on global duty with Senegal and was withdrawn late on in Saturday's 2-0 World Cup qualifying triumph over Cape Verde.

The Premier League giants have confirmed that as such the former Southampton winger is looking at up to six weeks out of action.

Should the estimated timeline for Mane's recovery prove accurate, he is set to miss the visit of Manchester United this weekend, as well as the trip to Tottenham, and back-to-back Champions League group stage fixtures with Maribor.

Mane has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances for the Reds this term and has become arguably their most important player.

Mane has enjoyed a blistering start to the season and has established himself as a talismanic figure for Jurgen Klopp's side.

The winger had only returned to domestic action in the 1-1 draw at Newcastle prior to the Federation Internationale de Football Association break having served a three-match ban following his sending off against Manchester City in September.
