Sadio Mane ruled out of FIFA World Cup 2022

Sadio Mane of Senegal is reportedly out of the World Cup after suffering a tendon injury during Bayern Munich’s match against Werder Bremen.

Just 20 minutes into Bayern’s 6-1 victory over Bremen on Tuesday, the former Liverpool forward was substituted, raising serious concerns about his health for Qatar less than two weeks before the tournament.

The former Liverpool forward was taken off just 20 minutes into Bayern’s 6-1 win over Bremen on Tuesday night.

Sadio Mane of Senegal is reportedly out of the World Cup after suffering a tendon injury during Bayern Munich’s match against Werder Bremen.

Just 20 minutes into Bayern’s 6-1 victory over Bremen on Tuesday, the former Liverpool forward was substituted, raising serious concerns about his health for Qatar less than two weeks before the tournament.

And according to L’Equipe, he won’t represent Senegal in the competition, inflicting his country a devastating blow as they get ready to play without their talisman against the Netherlands, Ecuador, and hosts Qatar in their group stage matchup.

L’Equipe reports that Mane is thought to have sustained a tendon injury and will be absent for “many weeks,” giving national team coach Aliou Cisse a big dilemma only days before unveiling his World Cup roster.

After first stating that the player had suffered a blow to the tibia, his Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann said the player would undergo an X-ray to ascertain the severity of the injury and expressed his hope that it was ‘not a significant damage’

‘He took a knock to the head of his tibia,’ he said. ‘It’s always uncomfortable. He has to have an X-ray. I hope nothing is wrong.

I hope it’s not a serious injury because I didn’t see him after the game. But I’m not sure right now,” the Bayern manager continued. We’ll wait till tomorrow before providing an update.
The 30-year-old limped out holding his right leg and signaled for Bayern’s medical staff to enter the field just 15 minutes into their match against Werder Bremen.

It is evident that Nagelsmann substituted Leroy Sane for Senegal sensation Sadio Mane because he didn’t want to run the danger of aggravating Mane’s injury.

The absence of Mane, who has 93 caps and 34 goals for his nation, will be felt keenly in the Senegal squad.

He figured prominently in the team’s success as they defeated Egypt on penalties to win this year’s Africa Cup of Nations after scoring four goals altogether. Mane has been doing admirably for Bayern during his first season in Germany after moving there from Liverpool for £35 million in the summer. In 23 games in all competitions, he has 11 goals and four assists.
