Mane Hits Bayern Teammate – Report

African Footballer of the Year, Sadio Mane was in a heated altercation with Leroy Sane after Bayern Munich’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City and allegedly hit his teammate, according to reports in Germany.

Mane, who turned 31 this week, has been struggling to regain his top form since moving to the German giants, and has been without a goal since picking up an injury before the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Their heated clash continued after the final whistle in the change room, when both players again clashed and Mane allegedly hit Sane on the lip.

The club are yet to make a statement on the incident.

Overall, Mane has made 31 appearances since joining Bayern from Liverpool, scoring 11 goals and setting up another five.
