Sadio Sane was fined more than 300k Euros for his altercation with Leroy Sane. The Senegalese punched his teammate following their recent defeat against Manchester City in UEFA Champions League.
Bayern Munich’s hierarchy now views the signing of SadioMane a year earlier as a mistake. Florian Plettenberg claims that the Bavarian board is looking to sell Sadio Mane in the next transfer window. Thomas Tuchel would love to work with Mane, but Bayern does not want to keep him beyond this summer.
Mane and Sane both apologized to their teammates. The German forward showed up at training the next day with a visible stain on his face.

Leroy Sane, despite being the recipient of Mane’s fists has spoken out in support of his Senegalese counterpart. After their spat, the two Bayern forwards appear to have reconciled.
According to reports, the German has asked Bayern Munich not to impose any heavy fines on Mane. He also asked that Mane, the winner of the Champions League in 2019, not be suspended.
Mane did not appear in the recent Bayern Munich draw with Hoffenheim. The reigning champions were unable to capitalize on the dominance they displayed throughout the match, and the Allianz Arena ended in a 1-1 draw. The fans of the Senegalese hope that he will feature against Manchester City for the return leg in order to help them overcome a three goal deficit.
