Reputedly calm and good-natured, Sadio Mané nonetheless hit out at his teammate Leroy Sané. It was after the 0-3 defeat on the pitch of Manchester City in the quarterfinal first leg of the Champions League on Tuesday, April 11. This blow of blood has very quickly made the rounds of the media and social networks. Although, strangely, there was no explanation of the dispute that led to the fight.
However, Taggat gave a version of the story. The Senegalese media claims that Leroy Sané would have made racist remarks towards Sadio Mané. "Scheisse Schwarzer (black shit, editor's note)" would have said the German. This made Mané twitch and respond with a blow to the face. In addition, Sané would have even apologized in the hotel before leaving Manchester. As for the Senegalese international, he apologized in front of his teammates at training.

We know a little more about what made Sadio Mané crack. This could also weigh heavily in the balance regarding his future. Because, several German and European media have very quickly put his future in Bavaria between brackets after this incident. But the Munich team still excluded him from the group for the game against Hoffenheim this weekend. "Sadio Mané, 31, will not be in the squad of FC Bayern for the home game against 1899 Hoffenheim next Saturday. The reason is the misconduct of Mané after the Champions League match of FC Bayern at Manchester City. In addition, Mané will receive a fine".
What about Leroy Sané? There is no doubt that if the statements are true, sanctions will also fall on the son of Souleymane Sané, former Senegalese international.
