Sadio Mane Arrives at Bayern’s Training Centre for Reconciliation Talks after Heated Altercation with Leroy Sane
Sadio Mane, the ex-Liverpool winger, was caught on camera smiling as he arrived at Bayern Munich’s training centre for talks with top brass after a shocking incident with team-mate Leroy Sane. Mane allegedly punched Sane in the face following Bayern’s 3-0 crushing defeat to Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
While the incident left Sane injured, it could have severe repercussions for Mane who is expected to apologise to the rest of the Bayern squad later today. Sky Sports Germany reports that the club’s management is weighing up a range of sanctions, including fines, suspensions, and even separation from the squad entirely.
The team will start their training shortly, but Mane’s early arrival suggests that he will have talks with the club before the session. As per reports, the altercation took place between the two wingers after an on-pitch argument that spilled into the tunnel post-match.
The incident has presented manager Thomas Tuchel with a huge challenge as Bayern fights to get back on their feet from their latest defeat and secure the promise of the Champions League trophy this season. Bayern, who lead the Bundesliga by only two points, is set to face Hoffenheim on Saturday afternoon, and a win is crucial to strengthen their position.
Bayern’s second leg clash with Manchester City is on April 19, and Tuchel will have a lot to contemplate. Stay tuned for further updates.
