Bayern Munich suspends, fine Sadio Mane for misconduct after punching team-mate Leroy Sane

Bayern Munich have suspended Sadio Mane after his dressing room bust-up with Leroy Sane on Tuesday.

Mane punched his team-mate in the face after his side’s 3-0 defeat by Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at the Etihad.

The Senegalese star, who was pictured back in Bayern training this morning alongside Sane, has avoided the sack, as reported by MailOnline.

But Bayern confirmed in a statement that he had been axed from the squad for the crucial Bundesliga clash with Hoffenheim at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. The club also said Mane – who earns £17million a year – would receive an undisclosed fine.

Sadio Mané , 31, will not be in the FC Bayern squad for the home game against 1899 Hoffenheim next Saturday,’ Bayern said.

The reason is misconduct by Mané after FC Bayern’s Champions League game at Manchester City. In addition, Mané will receive a fine.’

Sane and Mane were seen confronting each other as they trudged off the pitch at the Etihad Stadium and the row boiled over when they went down the tunnel.

As the clash continued into the dressing room, Mane punched the German and left him with a bloodied lip, before the pair were dragged away from each other.

Sane obscured his lip when he touched down in Munich on Thursday morning, keen to hide any evidence of the altercation to the cameras.

Bayern’s stars are reportedly shocked by the incident and critical of the Senegalese international for punching Sane, who was one of Munich’s better players on the night.

The German champions were reportedly keen to make an example out of Mane in what has been a turbulent season within the Bayern camp.

As a result, the players do not expect Mane to stay at the club for long.

According to Bild, both Sane and Mane were present for a meeting held between the club’s bosses on Thursday morning.
