The Senegal international picked up the problem during Senegal’s 2-0 victory over Cape Verde on Saturday evening and was replaced in the 89th minute of the World Cup qualifier.
Mane jetted back to Liverpool to undergo assessment by the Merseyside club’s medical staff ahead of this weekend’s home clash against bitter rivals Manchester United.
The Reds released a statement on their website on Tuesday evening confirming that Mane had suffered a hamstring problem and would be out for the next six weeks.
Former Liverpool defender Carragher was clearly disappointed to learn one of Jurgen Klopp’s key players will miss games against Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
Carragher wrote on his Twitter page: “FFS…….International football at its best!!!!!”
Mane has scored three goals in four games in the Premier League to make a brilliant start to the 2017-18 campaign.
The Senegal international scored 13 times and made five assists in 31 appearances in his first Premier League season as a Liverpool player last term.
Mane moved to the Reds in a £30m deal from Southampton in the 2016 summer transfer window.
