Sane is said to have insulted the skin color of his Senegal team-mate after the 0-3 loss to Man City in the European arena.
According to Taggat, “damn nigger” is the phrase Leroy Sane used to refer to his Senegalese teammates. The words of the former Man City star made Mane unable to keep his composure. He rushed over and punched Sane in the mouth.
After the incident, both Mane and Sane were sorry in front of the whole team. Bild revealed, Sane himself also asked the club not to give Mane a penalty. However, in order for this situation not to happen again, BLD Bayern was forced to act.
“For the German player, this story will end here”, Bild said.
In the immediate future, Mane will be suspended for the match against Hoffenheim this weekend, and will pay a fine of about 500,000 euros.
On April 13, the German press also recorded the scene of Mane and Sane facing each other on the training ground. Both of them acted as if nothing had happened.
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 was expected to replace Robert Lewandowski but he was only left disappointed. In this season, the former Liverpool player has only scored 11 goals after 31 appearances in all competitions, even losing the main kick to Choupo-Moting.
