BREAKING: Sadio Mane to miss World Cup in after injury

Sadio Mane of Bayern Munich is anticipated to miss the World Cup due to an injury sustained during Tuesday’s match against Werder Bremen.

Mane started the game but managed just 20 minutes before limping off with a seemingly innocuous injury, with Leroy Sane coming off the bench to replace him in the 6-2 victory.

Bayern had been confident that Mane’s injury would not be serious, with assistant Dino Toppmoller stating straight after the game: “He got hit in the leg, which caused a little nerve pain. Nothing too serious. His participation in the World Cup shouldn’t be in jeopardy.”

However, according to L’Equipe, Mane has actually suffered a tendon injury and will not be fit in time to feature at the World Cup.

Mane is no longer anticipated to make the cut for Senegal manager Aliou Cisse’s World Cup squad, which is a major setback for the African nation.

Mane has managed 92 appearances for his country, scoring 33 goals in that time and famously inspiring Senegal to Cup of Nations glory earlier this year.
