The fallout to the post-match scrap between Sadio Mané and Leroy Sané continues for the Senegalese player as was suspended by Bayern Munich for their game against Hoffenheim at the weekend. He also got fined over €300,000 for his fight against his teammate after a nothing incident.
Straight after their defeat to Manchester City last Tuesday, Mané decided to punch his teammate Leroy Sané in the face. Sane came out of the stadium covering his lips as they were bleeding.
The Mirror revealed that Mané is having a difficult time as he is grieving the death of his late aunt.
It is now rumoured that Mané will leave Bayern this summer. The joke around the Bavarian club is that they signed Mané's less-talented twin.
- @Plettigoal: 'Signing Mané is considered a mistake, especially with his salary of more than €20m/year. Following his disappointing performances, there's a joke doing the rounds at Säbener Straße that Bayern signed Mané's twin brother, not the one from Liverpool'

Sadio Mane's punishment
Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg revealed that besides being suspended for their Bundesliga game against Hoffenheim at the weekend, Mane was fined "way over €300,000".
According to our information, it is an amount that goes far beyond 300,000 euros, so it's a very, very sensitive fine for Mane.
Former German football star, Lothar Matthaus, has said that this sanction is justified for Sadio Mane: "I'm not shocked by this penalty, it's a reasonable penalty."
Bayern Munich has not yet officially communicated the further sanctions imposed on Mane. This means they have still not released the official amount of his fine.
It will be interesting to see what happens to Mané after the season - a return to Liverpool, who have been equally pitiful since Mané left - seems glaringly obvious.
However, Anfield Watch have said a reunion is not on the cards.
