Jurgen Klopp on missing Sadio Mane and Mo Salah

Liverpool youngster Mateusz Musialowski has been praised by another one of his Liverpool teammates.

And questions have been raised about Sadio Mane’s treatment at the Africa Cup of Nations after he suffered a concussion scare following a heavy collision with Cape Verde goalkeeper Vozinha, but remained on the pitch to net the game’s opening goal.
