Following their altercation with Leroy Sane following their 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich reportedly suspended Sadio Mane.
Journalist Tobi Altschäffl of Germany claims that the club has suspended the Senegalese till further notice.
Leroy Sane and Sadio Mane both participated in the team’s first practice since Tuesday’s loss to Manchester City.
Leroy Sane was allegedly struck in the face by Mane on Tuesday, April 11, 2023, in the Bayern Munich locker room at the Etihad Stadium shortly after the game.
According to a story by the German news agency Bild, the Liverpool icon got into a fight because he didn’t like the way Sane talked to him after the final whistle.
“There was a big bust-up between Sadio Mané and Leroy Sané last night. Both had an argument on the pitch. After the final whistle, Mané complained about how Sané spoke to him on the pitch. Suddenly, the Senegalese attacked Sané and hit him in the face (on the lip),” the report read.
Before the morning workout, the pair apologized to their teammates for their actions as the squad discussed the appropriate penalty to administer.
“Sadio Mané and Leroy Sané have apologised to their teammates following their altercation in Manchester in Bayern Munich training today,” statement read.
