“It’s great that I have received so many encouraging messages from fans around the world, particularly on social media.
“It makes me proud and gives me so much power that so many supporters of Liverpool FC and Senegal give me such great support. I’d like to say thank you to everyone.
“I will give my very best after yesterday’s successful surgery to be back on the pitch as soon as possible and be even better than before.”
The Mugsmashers are currently third on the Premier League table having played one more game than Manchester City in fourth place and two more than Manchester United in fifth. The Reds will be hoping to break the jinx of not qualifying for the Champions League.
