The German defending champion considers the transfer of Sadio Mane a mistake and wants to dismiss this player right in the summer market of 2023.
According to Sky Sports (Germany), coach Thomas Tuchel wants to exclude Sadio Mane from the plan for the next season because this player is not suitable for tactics. Bayern will find a way to sell the Senegal international when the 2023 summer market opens.
“Bayern considers the recruitment of Mane a big mistake, especially when they have to pay this player 20 million euros a year in salary. After Mane’s disappointing performances, there were jokes inside Bayern. that this team signed the wrong contract with Mane’s twin brother, not the star who once shone with Liverpool”, journalist Florian Plettenberg revealed.
Also according to Mr. Plettenberg, Bayern fined Mane 300,000 euros for punching teammate Leroy Sane, and denied all allegations that Sane had racist words against Mane.
In the latest speech, coach Tuchel allowed Mane to return to the first team: “Sadio’s reaction (after the penalty – PV) was very good and he also apologized. Tomorrow, Sadio will be back. He trained normally and was in the squad against Manchester City.”
TZ (Germany) said that Mane is going through a difficult week. In addition to being criticized by fans for his aggressive attitude towards teammates, the 31-year-old striker also suffered the loss of a loved one when his aunt passed away. Mane has not yet spoken to the media.
In the match against Man City, Mane came on from the bench. The little time is not enough for the former Liverpool star to make a difference. The 0-3 loss in the first leg at Etihad Stadium put the Bundesliga champions in great danger of being eliminated from the Champions League from the quarter-finals.
Mane joined Bayern from Liverpool for £35m in the summer of 2022. He was expected to replace Robert Lewandowski but did not meet expectations. This season, the former Liverpool player has only scored 11 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions, even losing his starting spot to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
According to some sources from Germany, Mane is wanting to return to play for Liverpool, the club with which he achieved success.
