An unbelievable incident took place at FC Bayern last night after the 3-0 defeat against Manchester City. According to consistent media reports, Sadio Mané punched his teammate Leroy Sané in the face. According to reports, the 31-year-old is facing an early exit from Bayern at the end of the season.
BILD“ reported on Wednesday evening about a fistfight between Mané and Sané in the Bayern dressing room. According to the report, the Senegalese player punched his teammate in the face. According to the paper, Mané was angry about the way Sané had talked to him. The two FCB professionals had already had a spat on the pitch during the match.
Mané faces dramatic punishment
Bayern have not yet commented on the incident. However, as „Sky“ reporter Florian Plettenberg reports, the 31-year-old is facing a draconian punishment that will go beyond a fine. As the Bayern insider speculates, the club could make a statement. Plettenberg even speculates about an early exit of the Senegalese at the record champion. In other words, Bayern could part with or kick out the offensive player at the end of the season.
Mané only moved from Liverpool FC last summer for almost 30 million euros. The signing was celebrated as a major transfer coup. Barely eight months later, Mané’s FC Bayern chapter could be over prematurely. The attacker is still contractually bound to FCB until 2025.
In addition to the scandal off the pitch, Mané has also been increasingly criticised by fans, media and experts in recent weeks for his mixed performances on the pitch. Those responsible at the Isar have also recently made it clear that they are hoping for a significant improvement in performance in the final spurt of the season.
To make matters worse, the dressing room brawl was not the first indiscipline Mané has allowed himself this season. According to rumours, there was already a spat with former coach Julian Nagelsmann during the CL second leg against PSG.
