Against all odds, Sadio Mané will be travelling to Qatar with his Senegalese teammates. Mane days ago picked up an injury during Bayern’s 6-1 encounter against Werder Bremen at the Allianz Arena, which has spawned so many claims that the 30-year-old will not be travelling to Qatar.
Mane was withdrawn 20 minutes into the game with a suspected injury to his fibula. Bayern in their update says the Senegalese forward will miss their game against Schalke and his X-ray will be conducted by the medical team for an update.
