Sadio Mané DOUBTFUL for World Cup after suffering injury in Bayern’s Bundesliga game on Tuesday

The latest Sadio Mané injury news has some conflicting reports. What’s certain is that the Bayern Munich and Senegal star forward is doubtful for the World Cup after suffering an injury to his right fibula.

Mané was substituted out of Bayern’s Bundesliga meeting with Werder Bremen in the 20th meeting after sustaining the leg injury.

French news outlet L’Équipe reported on Wednesday that Mané was officially out for the 2022 World Cup. Bayern then released a statement that he would miss the club’s next game but didn't officially rule him out of the World Cup.

Senegal will announce the 26-man roster for the World Cup on Friday, Nov. 11. Even if Mané is only at something like 60% health it’s worth bringing him to Qatar to potentially play in Senegal’s second or third games.

The defending AFCON champion and two-time African Player of the Year is too good to be left at home. Time will tell if he's healthy enough to play at the World Cup.
