Sadio Mane has been suspended and received a fine after punching fellow Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane in the face, the club have confirmed.
Mane’s time at Bayern has been eventful to say the least, with recent months bringing claims of a confrontation with then-manager Julian Nagelsmann.
His struggles on the pitch – where he is now 12 games without a goal – have been matched off it, with the aftermath of Tuesday’s 3-0 loss to Man City bringing an incident with Sane in the dressing room.
According to Sky Germany, after an argument with Sane in the closing stages at the Etihad, Mane then punched his team-mate in the face.
The contact left Sane with a bloody lip while the pair were “separated” by the rest of the squad, who were “visibly shocked” by the Senegalese’s actions.
Both players apologised to their team-mates on Thursday ahead of training, while Mane awaited the club’s punishment.
Though there were claims that he could even see his contract terminated – less than a year after joining from Liverpool – the 31-year-old has instead been suspended.
