In his argument with the doctors Mane insisted that the suggestion of being rested cannot apply.

With everyone being reluctant to allow him back in action and Liverpool having written to the federation asking that he be given sufficient rest until he was out of danger, Mane turned to his coach and said, "coach I know you are worried but just write a paper and I will sign."
In his narration Mane indicates that the mood in the medical room was tensed as everyone was worried. But as the discussion continued the team doctor suggested that at leats a scan was to be done first before any conclusions were made and Mane agreed.
