Bayern Munich players make Sadio Mane feelings clear after shock at Leroy Sane incident
Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sane was seen with a fat lip at the weekend after an alleged altercation with Sadio Mane in the wake of last week’s defeat to Manchester City.
Bayern Munich players have reportedly aimed private criticisms at Sadio Mane following his arrival from Liverpoolwith the Senegalese winger’s body language a problem among his team-mates.
Mane has been fined a reported £260,000 by Bayern Munich following an alleged altercation with Leroy Sane following last week’s loss to Manchester City. It is unclear whether he will make an appearance in this week’s second leg, despite the altercation having been ‘resolved’ according to Thomas Tuchel.
The former Liverpool winger has yet to hit the heights which he achieved at Anfield, as his contribution of just 11 goals has fallen below what was expected of the 31-year-old, with no goals for Bayern since October. However, the main source of concern has been revealed to be his body language, with the player’s attitude reportedly being critiqued privately by players.
This is according to Sky Germanywith journalist Florian Plettenberg revealing how a pre-World Cup injury which ruled him out of the tournament has affected the player. It has been claimed the setback has impacted his attributes which made him such a crucial player for Liverpool and Senegal in recent years.
It has also been claimed that private conversations have taken place between club chiefs, shining a light on how limited a future Mane appears top have in Bavaria. It has even been suggested that a summer transfer could be on the cards.
The update comes after Mane and Sane appeared to argue during the closing stages of their 3-0 loss last week, which leaves Thomas Tuchel’s men with a mountain to climb for the second leg in Germany next week.
Reports claimed the situation between the pair escalated in the dressing room, leading to an altercation in which Sane sustained a cut lip.
Upon the squad’s arrival back in Munich, it has been suggested Sane continued his journey on the team bus, while Mane – who had come off the bench to replace Jamal Musiala in the 69th minute – departed separately.
Tuchel has arrived at Bayern in the midst of a difficult season, with the club being pushed closer than they have in many years in the Bundesliga. Meanwhile their expected Champions League exit and the continued fallout from last week’s defeat shows the problems which remain big concerns for Tuchel as he moves forward with the German champions.
