I'm a bit concerned about Manes injury. We've seen so many times how a knee injury can set back players pace, and Mane i particular feeds a lot on his pace and his quick movement. I do not know how serious Manes injury was/ is, but I guess several months out must indicate a serious injury. What is your knowledge on this one Eds?

{Ed001's Note - impossible to say. A lot of it is up to the mind to deal with.}

Was the injury a meniscal tear? If so it's not a contractile structure such as muscle or tendon so should not impair power. The importance is post injury recovery and strengthening. Given the time in the off season this should easily be achieved. The biggest issue is return to normal football related activity such as accelerating/ decelerating and twisting/ turning. Much of this will come with preseason games. Therefore we may not see him at his lightning best until he has 10 games plus under his belt. Certainly wouldn't have any major worries so long as rehab is conducted properly.

I thought it was an ankle injury?

{Ed002's Note - Knee cartiledge.}

Thanks a lot for your replys, I guess there is a good chanse we'll se Mane on his best again. He is the kind of player our club have needed for many years. Unpredictable pace combined with a good nose for goals is always golden. Mane has fearfactor.

Ah thanks ed. I never pay to much attention and assumed ankle due to way he fell at the time of injury. Knee cartilidge isn't as bad as ligaments. I'm ex military and have had both in separate knees respectively. The one with ligament damage is far worse nowadays.
