Sadio Mané has said that it was 'hard to watch' Liverpool play without him during the his recent injury layoff.

The former Southampton star missed five games with a hamstring injury last month, Mané picking up his knock in Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Newcastle at the start of October.

The 25-year-old had only just returned to the pitch when he picked up his latest injury, following a three-match suspension after he accidentally collided with Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson at the Etihad Stadium.

"It is so hard for me to watch without being able to play. I get so nervous and can’t sit still," Mané admitted to Goal. "I am not even in my seat sometimes, I move one way, the other way. I really shake.

"It’s like I’m experiencing everything that’s happening in the game without being able to do anything. It’s crazy and I can’t explain it.

"Even now I ask myself how I can be so confident when I’m on the pitch, but if I have to just watch my team, I am filled with this worry.

"It is even worse if I am seeing the game at home on TV. I really don’t like not being able to help my teammates.

"It is tough because I always want to do all I can and when I can’t, I don’t know what to do with myself in these 90 minutes."
