Bayern Munich Suspend Sadio Mane For Punching Leroy Sane

Bundensliga Champion, Bayern Munich have left Sadio Mane out of their squad for Saturday’s league match against Hoffenheim because of the player’s “misconduct”.

Reports in Germany alleged Mane punched team-mate Leroy Sane in the face following Tuesday’s 3-0 Champions League defeat at Manchester City.

The pair reportedly had to be separated by team-mates after the altercation at Etihad Stadium.

Bayern confirmed that Senegal forward Mane will also be fined.

Bild said former Liverpool player Mane, a two-time African footballer of the year, had complained about the way Germany winger Sane spoke to him after the defeat.
