Liverpool forward Sadio Manè and Chelsea keeper Edward Mendy linked up with Senegal’s team ahead of the Afcon in Cameroon.

The duo flew in a private jet Sunday after their last Premier League match which ended 2-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Manè scored the opener for Liverpool before Egypt’s Mohammed Salah doubled the lead, but Chelsea managed to equalize in the second half.

Fifa and Caf extended the window European clubs could hold on to players before realizing them for the Afcon.
