Leroy Sane reportedly urged the Bayern Munich hierarchy to be lenient with Sadio Mane after the former Liverpool forward punched him in the face.

It was reported on Tuesday evening that Mane fought Sane in the Etihad dressing room after Thomas Tuchel’s side were battered 3-0 by Manchester City in the Champions League.

As a result, the Senegalese international’s future at the Allianz Arena was cast in doubt as he was the one to blame for the altercation.

It has since been revealed that Bayern suspended Mane for their game against Hoffenheim on Saturday.

‘Sadio Mane, 31, will not be in the FC Bayern squad for the home game against 1899 Hoffenheim next Saturday,’ a club statement read.

‘The reason is misconduct by Mane after FC Bayern’s Champions League game at Manchester City.

‘In addition, Mane will receive a fine.’

There was footage during the game of Mane and Sane arguing as things clearly boiled over in the dressing room.

The one-game suspension means the ex-Liverpool star will be available for next week’s second leg at home to City.

It could have been worse for Mane, however.

According to SPORT1 correspondent Kerry Hau, Sane ‘advocated not imposing a harsher punishment on Mane’.

The former City winger has clearly forgiven his teammate and is eager to put the ordeal behind them.

Sane spoke with the Bayern bosses on Thursday to ask them to go easy on Mane with the club’s hierarchy now expecting a ‘positive reaction’ from the 31-year-old.

‘Full focus on the end of the season. Kahn and Salihamidzic now expect a positive reaction from Mane.’

Both players used to be rivals in England with City and Liverpool often going head to head for the Premier League title.

Mane joined Bayern from the Reds last summer but has endured a frustrating time in Munich.

The one-time Champions League winner has found the back of the net 11 times in 32 appearances for the Bavarians and is without a goal since October.

He, unfortunately, suffered an injury last November which ruled him out of Senegal’s World Cup campaign.

Bayern chief executive Oliver Kahn recently said Mane’s struggles are down to the fierce competition for places at the Allianz Arena.

“He doesn’t know that (from Liverpool) and is perhaps not used to it,” Kahn said.

“He’s still looking for himself.”
