Liverpool's Sadio Mane admits while he misses football, there are more important things to focus on amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Reds have been champions-in-waiting for some time, having taken 79 points from 29 games to open up a 25-point lead over Manchester City.

Yet the Premier League, like the vast majority of competitions across the world, has been halted due to restrictions designed to limit the spread of COVID-19.

It remains to be seen when, or even if, the Premier League will return as the hiatus has extended past the beginning of May already.

However, Mane insists there are bigger concerns given over 83,000 people have died after contracting coronavirus worldwide.

The Reds have not won a top-flight championship since 1989-90, prior to the inception of the Premier League.
