Sadio Mane will miss Liverpool's Community Shield clash with Manchester City - and faces a race to be ready for the first game of the season against Norwich.

The forward has had a busy summer after reaching the Africa Cup of Nations final with Senegal - with his nation losing 1-0 against Algeria in the final on July 19.His club side have already returned to pre-season action and took part in a losing effort against Sevilla on Sunday night.

While the likes of Roberto Firmino, Alisson and Mohamed Salah are all still on holiday after featuring for their countries over the summer, Mane had the longest run of competitive football.

Jurgen Klopp has now confirmed he will not return to training until August 5.That means he will not be available for the game against City the day before, and has less than a week to prepare for the Premier League opener against Norwich on August 9.'He is in good shape,' Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

'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.

There is four or five days to prepare for Norwich, 10 days for Chelsea.
