Sadio Mane Explains How Liverpool Have Helped Muslim Players During Ramadan
Sadio Mane has revealed that Liverpool have changed their normal training schedule to help Muslim players taking part in Ramadan.
This year Ramadan began in the evening of April 1 and it will end at night on May 1.
Muslims traditionally fast from sunrise to sunset during Ramadan. During this period of fasting, followers are required to abstain from eating and drinking.
Liverpool have multiple senior players who are Muslim, including Mane, Mo Salah Ibrahima Konate and Naby Keita.
According to Mane, club captain Jordan Henderson spoke to Jurgen Klopp on behalf of those players and the manager agreed to move training sessions from the afternoon to the morning.
Speaking to beIN SPORTS, Mane explained: "It's not easy because playing and training and doing Ramadan is not easy at all.
But before Ramadan we tried to speak with the captain to tell the boss maybe can we change the schedule and train in the morning.
