L'Equipe : Sadio Mane will not play in Qatar

Senegalese national team member and member of Bayern Munich, Sadio Mane, was replaced in last night’s clash against Verder already in the 20th minute.

Mane arrived in Munich this summer, after 6 years spent in Liverpool. He had a great start to the season in Germany, scoring 6 goals in the domestic championship and registering 3 assists in 14 appearances.

Senegal qualified for the World Cup in Qatar after coming from a goal behind in the second leg against Egypt and then earned a place at the World Cup on penalties.

In last night’s match in the 14th round of the Bundesliga, Bayern hosted Werder Bremen, and Sadio Mane, after a duel, felt pain in his knee and had to leave the game in the 20th minute.

The French sports newspaper L’Equipe published this morning what all football fans feared – Sadio Mane will miss the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, precisely because of a knee injury.

Only 11 days are left until the start of the World Cup, which is not enough for the Senegalese to recover.

Surely, this is the biggest possible blow for the African selection, which is in a group with the host Qatar, the Netherlands and Ecuador.
