The altercation between Sadio Mané and Leroy Sané has not finished talking. A journalist explains why the Senegalese flew into a rage.
Sadio Mané is clearly having the most difficult season of his career. After a rather decent start to the exercise, the Senegalese striker injured his right fibula. An injury that shattered the former Liverpool player’s dream of carrying his nation to the World Cup in Qatar. Since his return, the Bavarian has been in difficulty. He rarely appears in the starting lineup of Bayern Munich and does not convince when he comes into play. His altercation with Leroy Sané after the match against Manchester City in the Champions League drives the point home. A Senegalese journalist explains the bloodshed of Sadio Mané, who hit his teammate in the face.

Mané disturbed by his situation
For Babacar Diarra, journalist at BBC Africa and follower of Senegal, the Lion is not at all adept at this kind of behavior. “He’s not nervous at all though. He never heated up with his teammates in selection. He respects the rules and never complains”, he put forward on Eurosport. Mané would be especially tense because of his complicated season in Bavaria and his injury suffered last November.
“You have to realize what he has been going through for a few months. He still hasn’t digested his package for a World Cup which meant so much to him“. It was enough for Mané to twist, while his relationship with Leroy Sané was already not looking good, according to certain sources and even if Bayern swept away suspicion of racial slur. The ex-Liverpool striker will make his return to the Bayern group this Wednesday, in the quarter-final second leg of the Champions League against Manchester City.
