Sadio Mane allegedly punched Bayern Munich teammate Leroy Sane in the face following Tuesday’s loss to Manchester City

Former Liverpool star Sadio Mane has landed in hot water at Bayern Munich following a reported spat with teammate Leroy Sane following their recent Champions League quarter-final loss to Manchester City. Mane joined Bayern Munich at the end of last season, following a highly successful six-year spell at Anfield, where he excelled alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino as part of a formidable attacking trio.

However, the Senegal winger has had a more difficult time in Germany, and was reportedly unable to control his frustrations after Bayern conceded three goals to City at the Etihad Stadium earlier this week. He was seen arguing with Sane on the field during the final stages of the game, and he allegedly punched his teammate in the face in the locker room, leaving him with a bloody lip.

The finer details of the conversation were later revealed by Mane in an interview with¬†Canal, in which he admitted that he was left hugely frustrated by Salah’s refusal to pass but insisted that the temporary bad blood between the duo was quickly buried and forgotten about.

Mane explained: “He said to me: ‘Sadio, why are you angry?’ I told him: ‘You needed to give me the ball, Mo’, to which he replied: ‘I didn’t see you. You know I’ve got nothing against you’.¬† I know that, but his reaction was a bit strange to me. We talk on the phone sometimes, we text each other and we don’t have a problem.

The finer points of the conversation were later revealed by Mane in an interview with Canal, in which he admitted that Salah’s refusal to pass had left him extremely frustrated, but insisted that the temporary bad blood between the two was quickly buried and forgotten about.

“He said to me, ‘Sadio, why are you angry?'” Mane explained. ‘You needed to give me the ball, Mo,’ I said, to which he replied, ‘I didn’t see you. You know I have nothing against you’. I’m aware of that, but his reaction struck me as odd. We talk on the phone occasionally and text each other without incident.

“We talked amongst ourselves, and then the manager summoned me to his office, where we spoke.” I told him it was already taken care of, and he was surprised.”

Around nine months later, Salah gave his own version of events, downplaying the incident even further by refusing to describe it as a genuine falling-out, with the Egyptian saying: “It wasn’t a fight.” Everyone wants to see Liverpool win and cheer on their teammates.

“Sometimes during the game, we get angry, but that passes quickly, and the game after we assisted each other and helped Liverpool with our goals and assists.”
