Bayern Munich Star Punched Teammate In The Face After Champions League Loss

Milan, Italy. 07 September 2022. UEFA Champions League 2022-23. Inter VS Bayern Munchen 0-2. #17, Sadio Mané, Bayern Munchen.


Tempers have been boiling over between teammates in recent days, and throwing punches seems to be all of the rage. We first saw it when Rudy Gobert threw a sideline punch, and now the soccer world is facing a similar situation in the Champions League.

Bayern Munich suffered an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Manchester City on Tuesday, with frustration visible on the field in the closing minutes. Those frustrations reportedly boiled over in the locker room.

According to Sky Sports News, Bayern Munich forward Sadio Mane punched teammate Leroy Sane in the face after the game.

ESPN added additional information saying, “Sane suffered a cut lip in the altercation and that the two — who also were seen arguing on the pitch late in the game — had to be separated by teammates.”

The altercation reportedly began because Mane was unhappy with the way Sane spoke to him following the loss.

Bayern Munich has not commented on the alleged incident.

Bayern Munich will have an opportunity to overcome the 0-3 hole they are in next week in Leg 2 of the quarterfinals on their home field, but first they’ll have to repair any possible fracture between the teammates.
