Bayern to “do everything possible” to axe Mane this summer after Sane clash

Bayern Munich will “do everything possible to axe Sadio Mane” after he was fined £260,000 for allegedly punching Leroy Sane, according to reports.

Former Manchester City attacker Sane showed off his busted lip for the first time at the weekend after being punched by his team-mate Mane.

Tempers flared on the pitch as both players clashed during their team’s 3-0 Champions League defeat to Man City last week.

And the argument continued in the dressing room afterwards, with Mane striking Sane in the face. And the ex-Liverpool star has since been suspended by Bayern.

Now journalist Florian Plettenberg claims that the club will be trying their best to sell the Senegalese forward at the end of the campaign after fining him.

He told Sky Germany: “According to our information, it is an amount that goes far beyond €300,000 (£260,000), so it’s a very, very sensitive fine for Mane.

“From what I’m hearing, Bayern will try everything to offload Sadio Mane in the summer.

“From a sporting point of view, Thomas Tuchel has no plans with Mane as he doesn’t fit his system. “This is my information. The player is seen very critically internally.”

Meanwhile, Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel broke his silence over the incident as he revealed that Mane would only be banned for one game, which they drew 1-1 with Hoffenheim, but will be back for the return leg with City this week.

He said: “That’s settled. A game and a fine are the consequences of what happened.

“The way both players involved dealt with it, the way the other players dealt with it, it had a cleansing effect.  “We had a positive atmosphere yesterday and today. I’m here to defend Mane.

“I’ve known him for a very long time and only know him as an absolute professional. I also know his entourage. He has never been guilty of anything.”
