Mane out of Shield clash against City.
SADIO Mane will miss Liverpool's Community Shield meeting with City on August 4, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.
Mane will enjoy two weeks' holiday following the Africa Cup of Nations before resuming training with the Anfield club ahead of their Premier League opener against Norwich on August 9. Mane's Senegal were beaten by Riyad Mahrez's Algeria in the Afcon final on Friday night.
Following his disappointment in Cairo, Mane will be absent for the season's traditional curtain-raiser at Wembley.
"He is in good shape,"Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com of Mane's physical state. "Obviously they had a celebration in Senegal and I'm happy about that because it showed that they respect the competition and saw the second place as a success, which is nice.
"He is now on holiday, not the longest one - he will be back on August 5, after the Manchester City game."
