Mane’s injury is stopping him from his upcoming matches.‘s prospects of representing Senegal at the World Cup seem to be dwindling after he injured his knee against Werder Bremen. As Die Roten crushed Werder Bremen 6-1 on Tuesday night, the Bayern Munich forward was taken off hurt after just 20 minutes. Head coach Julian Nagelsmann confirmed it was a tibia injury.
According to what we gathered, Mane had tested this morning, and the results indicated a 3- to 4-week initial recuperation time. The international player from Senegal will undergo additional testing to determine the recuperation period and his chances of competing in the World Cup. Even if it is not yet certain, likely, he won’t make the tournament.
Mane won’t be available for this weekend’s Bundesliga match against Schalke, Bayern has announced in an official statement. Sadio Mane was hurt during FC Bayern’s 6:1 victory over Werder Bremen, breaking his right fibula. The statement reads, “This Saturday’s game against FC Schalke will not feature Africa’s Footballer of the Year.” In the next few days, additional examinations will be conducted. FC Bayern will share information with the Senegalese Football Association’s medical department.
After the Bremen game, Nagelsmann was queried about the 30-year-old and expressed immediate concern because he was worried that Mane’s injury would quickly splinter. Sadio Mane was hit in the leg, which gave him some minor nerve pain, but his aide Dino Toppmoeller was able to provide a more upbeat update. Nothing too serious, and it shouldn’t affect his ability to compete in the World Cup. Additional scans and testing will reveal the full degree of the injury-related damage to Mane’s leg, which should then determine whether or not he can travel to Qatar with his country.
