Sadio Mane Missed The Last Penalty As Senegal Were Dumped Out Of AFCON By Cameroon..........While Liverpool Take No Chance.

Liverpool have wasted no time in getting Sadio Mane back after he missed a crucial and the last penalty for his country that saw them knocked out by Cameroon in the quarter-final penalty shoot-out on Saturday evening in Gabon.
Senegal and Cameroon played a goalless draw after regular time and also couldn't record a goal at the end of the 30 minutes extra time given, the game went into penalty shoot-out with Cameroon converting all five penalty kick while Senegal could only score four and that's the end of the road at African Cup of Nation for Senegal.

Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group, have arranged for the forward to return as soon as possible to England as he is expected to come straight into Liverpool squad for Tuesday's Premier League clash with League leaders Chelsea at Anfield.

Sadio Mane has taken a private jet from Gabon straight and he is expected to be on the list to face Chelsea if not starting line up but substitute bench at least.

Liverpool fans will be excited by the prospect of his return, with their team having won just once in his absence.

Jurgen Klopp's men have had a tough January, being knocked out of both the League Cup and FA Cup as well as losing ground in the Premier League.

They were defeated 2-1 at Anfield by Championship side Wolves on Saturday in the fourth round of the Emirate FA Cup. 

Jurgen Klopp will leave it to the last moment before deciding whether to include Sadio Mane in his Liverpool side to face Chelsea. He revealed that the 24-year-old will fly back on Monday and will report for duty on Tuesday morning.
Klopp said "I don't know exactly if he will be involved. He's now on his way, we thought it would be possible yesterday[Sunday].
"We had a plane there yesterday, but he wasn't allowed. He had to wait.
Now it's all good, he will be here this night at some point. I spoke to him, it's all good so far. He'll be in tomorrow morning, I have no idea. I have to look in his eyes, then make a decision."
