Liverpool name date for Sadio Mane's return to training

Klopp remains an admirer of his No. 28, however, and it could be that later in pre-season he works his way back into the fold.

Liverpool have eight friendlies scheduled over the next month as they prepare for their Champions League play-off tie in August, although next week's matches against Tranmere Rovers and Wigan Athletic will come too soon for Mane.

"He will continue to be monitored and assessed by the club's medical staff to ensure he returns in the best shape and ready for the remainder of the pre-season schedule".

There, Liverpool are set to face Crystal Palace on the 19th while West Brom and Leicester City also face off, with the victor and loser of each match being paired up for a "final" on the 22nd.

Ings, though, is focused on the present and has offered no indication that he is looking for a way out of Anfield, either on loan or permanently, after failing to make his mark. The England worldwide has been out since October and though he was absent from the main group, Ings is working with physiotherapist Matt Konopinski in an effort to prove his fitness ahead of pre-season.

"I'm doing really well at the moment", said Ings. I'm back doing ball work.

Liverpool's official website revealed that Mane was under two weeks away from being able to take part in full training alongside his team-mates, but Ings told the same outlet that he was not putting any timescale on when he would return himself. That was disappointing but I'm very positive and dying to get back into the swing of things this pre-season. I'm just glad to be back on the pitch, running and playing football, that's the main thing. Hopefully I can stay fit.

"I've been waiting for a long time to get back on the first day". I was excited to get out there this morning.
