Caoe Town - Liverpool winger Sadio Mane will undergo knee surgery on Tuesday, which will keep him on the sidelines for the next two months - officially ending his season.

The Senegal international hurt his knee in a challenge with Everton left-back Leighton Baines on April 1 in the Merseyside derby at Anfield, where the hosts emerged 3-1 victors.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp admitted on Friday that Mane was unlikely to feature again this term, and reports of an imminent operation have confirmed the lengthy lay-off.

According to Press Association Sport, the 25-year-old is due to go under the knife in London before starting the long rehabilitation process.

Mane has enjoyed a productive debut campaign on Merseyside, scoring 13 goals in 27 Premier League appearances since making the switch from Southampton in the off-season.
