Leroy Sane's plea to Bayern Munich after Sadio Mane 'bust-up'

Leroy Sane's plea to Bayern Munich after Sadio Mane 'bust-up'

Sane and Mane reportedly came to blows following Bayern's battering at the hands of Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final.

Leroy Sane spoke to Bayern Munich bosses before they decided to suspend Sadio Mane, after the pair's dramatic bust up in midweek.

Bayern got battered on Tuesday night, as Manchester City put one foot in the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 3-0 win over the Bundesliga champions.

Dayot Upamecano was getting much of the blame for the performance, with the France centre back not delivering the kind of display you'd expect.

However, off the pitch, it was all about the coming to blows between the two superstar forwards, with Mane reportedly attacking his teammate.

The incident led to talk that the former Liverpool forward could be sold by the German giants, less than a year after he joined them from the Reds.

For now, at least, he won't be playing for Thomas Tuchel's side, with the Senegal star having been given a temporary suspension by the club.

However, the punishment could have been even worse for the 31-year-old, if it wasn't for the intervention from the man who he 'attacked.'

According to German outlet, SPORT1, Sane approached the Bayern hierarchy and asked them not to give his teammate too harsh a punishment.

Instead Sane wants the whole thing not to be dragged on and allow the players to get back to focusing on their push for another Bundesliga title, and a potential comeback against City.

Reports claim that CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic want to see a positive reaction from Sane between now and the end of the season.

That will determine the former Southampton player's future at the Allianz Arena, and he might need to help them win the league to have any chance of staying.

Being behind Borussia Dortmund led to Julian Nagelsmann's sacking but the club are at least back ahead of their main rivals, even if it is by only two points.

So far Mane has only scored six Bundesliga goals, since joining at the start of the campaign after Robert Lewandowski left for Barcelona, and not bagged since October 29th.

Some have posed the question whether he could return to Anfield next season, after recently claiming he was 'convinced' they would bounce back from their poor campaign to date.
