Bayern Munich striker Sadio Mane has been fined the heaviest ever for assaulting a teammate.
On the 19th (Korean time), the German daily newspaper ‘Bild’ said, “Mane was fined 350,000 euros (about 500 million won), a club record, for a locker room clash with Leroy Sane after Munich lost 3-0 to Manchester City last week. ” reported.
“There is an option to foreclose Mane’s salary, but the club objected to this method,” he said. Munich chairman Herbert Heiner said: “The fine hurts Mane enough even if he gets paid.”
A similar situation occurred in 2012. At the time, when Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben had a feud, Ribery was fined 50,000 euros (approximately 72 million won).
Mane had an altercation with his teammate Sane during the game at the time of the first leg of the quarterfinals of the European Champions League in the 2022-2023 season against Man City on the 12th. Afterwards, the argument that led to the locker room eventually escalated into a bigger problem when Mane punched Sane in the mouth. Mane subsequently apologized to his teammates, along with his fine and suspension. Sane also accepted Mane’s apology and the controversy ended.
However, it is in fact an exit atmosphere.토토사이트 Sky Sports German reporter Florian Plettenberg said, “Munich will do everything it can to release Mane.”
Coach Tuchel explained, “Mane’s behavior was a heavy incident. Fortunately, it was important that it was finished before the next training session.” “I’ve known Mane for years. He’s a top-notch professional player. He’s never been in that situation. He’s focused on football and I have full confidence in him. Everyone has the right to make mistakes.”
“I’m sure sometimes conflict is necessary to bring a team together more. It’s not a weakness, it’s a strength for us,” he said.
