Sadio Mane suspended by Bayern Munich after fight with Leroy Sane

Bayern Munich have suspended Sadio Mane following his altercation with Leroy Sane after their Champions League loss to Manchester City in midweek.

Former Liverpool  star Mane, who joined Bayern last summer, was only used as a late substitute at the Etihad but was involved in an on-field row with Sane in the 83rd minute. That row continued post-game in the dressing room, where Mane punched his teammate in the face. Mane has been fined by Bayern but has now been temporarily suspended by club chiefs also.

A club statement read: “Sadio Mane, 31, will not be included in the FC Bayern squad for this Saturday’s home match against 1899 Hoffenheim. This is due to his misconduct after Bayern’s Champions League match at Manchester City. Mané will also be given a fine.”
