Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has revealed that he is closing in on a return to fitness after missing six weeks with a knee injury.
The Senegal international required surgery after suffering the problem during the Reds' 3-1 win over Merseyside rivals Everton at Anfield.
Mane is unlikely to return to action for Liverpool's final two games against West Ham United and Middlesbrough, but it seems as though he will be raring to go for pre-season.
"I am getting better and I want to thank all of the physios for doing a great job - not just with me, they're always doing a great job," Mane told the club's official website.
"Hopefully next week I will start running, jogging, so I am happy and looking forward to it."
