Sadio Mané will miss the World Cup following surgery

After having surgery to treat his leg injury, Senegal’s star player Sadio Mané has been told he will not play in the World Cup, according to Bayern Munich and the Senegalese soccer association. Check out the complete details about it below.

The 30-year-old Mané was treated for an injury he incurred playing for Bayern in a German Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen on November 8 with an operation in Innsbruck, Austria, according to Bayern. The procedure involved reattaching a tendon to the head of his right fibula.

As a result, the FC Bayern striker will no longer be able to represent Senegal at the World Cup. Instead, he will start his rehabilitation in Munich soon, according to Bayern.

The development was regrettably not as good as we had hoped, according to today’s MRI, Afonso remarked. “Unfortunately, as a result, we have decided to remove Sadio from the World Cup.”

Mané, a two-time African player of the year, was expected to make a comeback at some point during the competition, according to Senegal, the current African champion.

The majority of Senegal’s World Cup team landed in Qatar on Sunday. On Monday, the squad plays its first match in Qatar against the Netherlands.

After facing the Netherlands four days prior, Senegal hosts Qatar. On November 29, it plays against Ecuador in its last Group A match.

When Mané converted the go-ahead penalty in a shootout to defeat Egypt in the African Cup final in February, Senegal earned its first major championship. Additionally, Senegal’s spot in Qatar was secured by Mané’s game-winning penalty in a playoff.

Many people considered Senegal to be the greatest African squad to ever compete in a World Cup because to Mané.
