Qatar 2022: Mane to undergo X-ray after injury

November 9, 2022

Bayern Munich star, Sadio Mane is reportedly out of the World Cup after limping off with an injury against Werder Bremen on Tuesday.

Mane went down and received medical attention on the pitch before being taken off.

According to L’Equipe the former Liverpool forward has picked up a knee injury after damaging his tendon and is set to spend several weeks on the treatment table.

Speaking after the game, Bayern assistant coach Dino Toppmoller looked to play down the severity of the injury.

He said Mane suffered a slight nerve pinch but it wasn’t too serious and his World Cup shouldn’t be at risk.

However Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann confirmed after the match that the winger will “have an x-ray”.

Nagelsmann said: “I didn’t see him [Mane] after the game, I hope it’s not a big injury.

“But I don’t know at the moment. We’ll see tomorrow and then give an update.”

Mane looks set to join a host of star names who won’t be taking part at the tournament.

Just for England, Reece James is a major doubt and Ben Chilwell, Kalvin Phillips and Emile Smith Rowe definitely aren’t going.
