Leroy Sane left with bloodied lip after full-time altercation with Sadio Mane

Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane was left with a bloodied lip following an altercation with Sadio Mane at full-time of their side’s 3-0 Champions League defeat by Manchester City.

The former Premier League duo were first embroiled in an argument on the pitch which then carried into the dressing room — as first reported by Bild.

Mane, 31, slapped Sane, 27, to leave his team-mate with a bleeding lip before their team-mates jumped in to separate the duo.

Bayern Munich are taking stock of the situation before deciding what to do next with Mane likely to be punished.

Mane, who does not have history of being involved in such altercations, has been under scrutiny in recent months after a series of average performances.

The former Liverpool attacker has scored 11 goals in 32 appearances during his first season at Bayern.

There is not thought to be any pre-existing issues between Mane and Sane.

Bayern Munich refused to comment when approached by The Athletic.

Sane played the full 90 minutes against his former side while Mane replaced Jamal Musiala after 69 minutes.

Bayern Munich look set to exit the Champions League at the quarter-final stage following the 3-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

Rodri, Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland scored the goals for Pep Guardiola’s side as the Premier League champions put one foot in the semi-finals of Europe’s elite competition.

Bayern, who are top of the Bundesliga table, host Hoffenheim on Saturday and then turn their attention back to the Champions League next Wednesday.
