Bayern react to beating scandal: Mane will miss Hoffenheim clash and get fined

Bayern have suspended Sadio Mané for the next game — he won’t be in the squad vs Hoffenheim and will also be fined.

Bayern Munich officials held a meeting on Wednesday to discuss possible punishments for Mane. Among the sanctions considered were a fine, suspension, and even a parting of the ways in the summer.

It was expected that Mane would apologise in front of the team during Thursday’s training session.

Sane and Mane were seen on the pitch arguing in the latter stages of the match on Tuesday night, where City beat the German champions 3-0 at Etihad Stadium in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final first leg.

After landing back in Munich, Mane, who was a substitute for the tie, took the team bus from the airport while Sane was picked up privately.

On returning to Munich, Sane was pictured appearing to hide his bottom lip from cameras.

Bayern’s official statement:

“Sadio Mane, 31, will not be in the FC Bayern squad for the home game against Hoffenheim next Saturday. The reason is Mane’s misconduct after FC Bayern’s Champions League game at Manchester City. In addition, Mane will receive a fine.”
