German giants Bayern Munich have suspended and fined Sadio Mane after the forward was involved in a physical altercation with team-mate Leroy Sane. This happened following their Champions League defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday night. According to reports, Sane’s lip was left bleeding after the incident. The two players had to be separated by their fellow team-mates in the dressing room.
Mane will not be included in Bayern Munich’s squad for their home game against Hoffenheim on Saturday. He will also receive a fine for his misconduct. The 31-year-old was expected to apologize in front of the team during Thursday’s training session.
Mane and Sane were seen arguing on the pitch in the latter stages of the match on Tuesday. This reportedly led to the altercation in the dressing room after the game.
After landing back in Munich, Mane took the team bus from the airport, while Sane was picked up privately. Sane was pictured appearing to hide his bottom lip from cameras.
This incident is a blow to Bayern Munich, who are looking to win their seventh Champions League title. It also raises questions about team unity and discipline, as well as the future of Mane at the club.
The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of discipline and professionalism in football. As one of the top clubs in Europe, Bayern Munich will need to ensure that their players uphold their standards both on and off the pitch if they hope to achieve success in the future.
