Posted by samyomsan on May 9th, 2023

Bayern Munich have endured a grueling start to the season and now face additional issues after Senegal international Sadio Mane is reported to have punched team-mate Leroy Sane following Tuesday night's 3-0 Champions League loss at Manchester City.

The Bundesliga leaders have suspended and fined Senegalese winger Yaya Toure for his actions. He will not play in their home game against Hoffenheim on Saturday and may even be released altogether.

Mane’s punishment

Bayern Munich have suspended and fined Sadio Mane for punching team-mate Leroy Sane during a post-match altercation after their 3-0 Champions League loss to Manchester City on Tuesday night. The Senegal international was involved in an on-field altercation with Sane after leaving the pitch during Tuesday's game.

Mane is said to have punched Sane in the face during their clash, leaving a mark on his face before other players pulled them away from each other.

On Thursday, the Senegalese star apologized to his teammates. However, Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenburg reported that Bayern Munich are considering what sanction should be applied against Mane. They could impose a financial fine, suspension or even terminate his contract this summer.

Last summer, the 31-year-old arrived in Munich on a million deal and has become an impressive earner. Unfortunately, he has not seen much action this season and is expected to see limited playing time going forward.

The incident

Bayern Munich have suspended and fined Sadio Mane after an altercation with team-mate Leroy Sane on Tuesday night. As a result, the former Liverpool forward will not play in their match against Hoffenheim on Saturday after being punished for punching Sane during their Champions League encounter against Manchester City that evening.

Reports state Mane punched the German winger in the face after they got into an argument on the field during Bayern's 3-0 loss to Manchester City. Following their separation by their teammates, both players were seen fighting off the field.

After Mane's incident, CEO Oliver Kahn and board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic met to discuss Mane's punishment before ultimately opting to suspend him. It was expected that Mane would then apologize to all members of the squad.

However, the incident has raised many questions about Mane's future at Bayern Munich. Although he is under contract to the German club until 2025, it appears unlikely he will stay beyond this season.

Mane’s future

Bayern Munich have suspended and fined Sadio Mane for punching teammate Leroy Sane during a dressing room altercation after their 3-0 Champions League quarter-final loss to Manchester City on Tuesday. The incident occurred after the two players had an argument on the field before engaging in physical contact afterward.

Unfortunately, Mane and Bayern Munich are in a precarious position - one which has consequences far beyond football. As an ex-Liverpool forward, Mane is highly valued and talented player who has earned every top club honor in England.

He is a powerful dribbler and an impressive passer, capable of scoring goals with both feet from distance or close range. Furthermore, his explosive speed makes him a threat on the counterattack.

Robert Lewandowski, Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry have all been linked with departures this summer. If Mane does indeed join Bayern Munich's offensive arsenal, it would add another potent weapon in their attack as they look to compete for the Champions League next season.

Bayern’s reaction

German champions Borussia Dortmund have suspended and fined Senegal international Mane for punching team-mate Leroy Sane during Tuesday's Champions League defeat to Manchester City. Furthermore, they announced they will not include Mane in their squad for Saturday's game against Hoffenheim.

After their 3-0 loss to Mane, Mane and Sane got into a post-match fight in which Mane punched Sane in the face. They were ultimately separated in the dressing room after this altercation and Sane's lip was bleeding from it.

Bayern suffered a heavy defeat and now face an uphill battle in their return leg against Manchester City next week. With the deficit now standing at three goals, they must overcome this hurdle if they are to advance.

Mane has struggled since joining from Liverpool last summer, with injury interfering with his performance and leaving him with just six goals in 20 Bundesliga appearances. Furthermore, Mane's disciplinary record has been poor as well, suggesting he may be struggling in his new environment under Thomas Tuchel.
