Mane opens up on punching Bayern Munich teammate Sane
Bayern Munich attacker Sadio Mane has broken his silence about punching teammate Leroy Sane last season.
Mane lashed out at Sane, punching him in the face after Bayern Munich's 3-0 Champions League defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in April.
Sane was left with a bloodied lip, and Bayern Munich teammates had to separate the duo in the tunnel.
Mane was later fined £250,000 by Bayern and given a one-game ban, the biggest in the club’s history.
However, the former Liverpool man has now reflected on the ugly incident, telling reporters in his homeland: “This kind of thing can happen. It happened. We were able to solve this small problem.
The Senegalese international added, “Sometimes it’s good to solve problems, but maybe not in this way. It’s behind us now.
“We’ll try to fight together to help the club achieve its goals next season.”
Mane arrived at Bayern Munich from Liverpool last summer.
The 31-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Bundesliga champions this summer.
