Shortly before the start of the tournament, of course, there is always the fear of jeopardizing his participation in the World Cup through an injury. This is exactly the case with Sadio Mané: According to L'Equipe, the Bayern star will miss the tournament in Qatar.
The Senegalese had to be substituted after just 20 minutes in the furious 6-1 win over Werder Bremen. Julian Nagelsmann then said that Mané "received a blow to the head of his shin". "It may have to be under the X-ray machine and we have to see if there's anything there," said the Bayern coach.
An official diagnosis of the record champion is still pending, but L'Equipe is usually considered a well-informed source.
