Sadio Mane to Pay 50 000 Euros Fine at Bayern Munich : FC Bayern has suspended Sadio Mané for one match after his fist punch against Leroy Sane. It has now been announced that the Senegalese will also have to dig deep into his pocket and pay a hefty fine.
Bayern officially announced on Thursday that Mané has been suspended for the upcoming Bundesliga home match against TSG Hoffenheim due to his misbehaviour after the Champions League match against Manchester City.
The Munich side, however, did not specify the incident in the Bayern dressing room. According to consistent media reports, Mané punched his teammate Leroy Sané in the face and this has been corroborated by Mane’s cousin Pape Mahmoud Gueye.
According to BILD the 31-year-old also has to pay a fine in the mid-six-figure range. According to reports, the fine is likely to be close to 500,000 euros. This would be the biggest fine in the history of the Munich club.
By comparison, Franck Ribery had to pay 50,000 euros after a similar incident in April 2012, when he punched Arjen Robben.
The Senegalese journalist and cousin of the African Footballer of the Year , Pape Mahmoud Gueye, has given his version of what actually happened between Leroy Sane and Sadio Mane.
The mess between Mané and Sané lives a new chapter. After the blow to the lip that Mané gave the German player, from the camp of the former Liverpool footballer they clarify the alleged reasons of Mane to attack his teammate.
At first, it was Sané who addressed Mané in a bad way after not running into space on a ball that the Senegalese asked for.
According to Pape Mahmoud Gueye, the German footballer would have called Mane “black shit” during the dialectical discussion of both and this triggered the subsequent action of the Senegal icon.
Mané has since apologized to entire Bayern Munich players and coaches. He has been suspended by the club for one-match and will be fined too.
From Sky Sports, the possibility of the player leaving as a free agent was also mentioned, an option that seems to have subsided.
On the other hand, the Senegalese journalist explains that Leroy Sané would have been quickly aware of his unfortunate comments and would have apologized to the player and the dressing room, as well as his teammate.
Support from the President of the Senegal Football Federation :
The president of the Senegalese Football Federation, Augustin Senghor, has left a message on his social networks about the incident involving the country’s iconic figure :
“As president of the Federation, I cannot comment on an incident in the locker room after a game in his club. But know that you have our support and our total solidarity because we know what a beautiful person you are and will continue to be!”.
