0 125

Senegal’s talisman Sadio Mane would miss the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the Senegalese Football Federation, FSF, has confirmed.

TheNigerian News reported that the Bayern Munich star was named in Senegal’s World Cup squad despite being injured. But FSF in a statement issued on Thursday, said the former Liverpool man has been ruled out of the Middle East football party with a fibula injury.

Mane sustained the leg issue while playing in Bayern Munich’s 2-0 win over Schalke on Saturday.

It was announced on Tuesday that Mane would not play any part in Senegal’s opening matches.

FSF had said the team “will have to rely on playing the first games without Sadio”.

But Thursday’s update confirms Mane’s injury will need surgery, thus ruling him out of the entire tournament in Qatar.

A short statement from the Federation read: “The FSF wishes a speedy recovery to its player Sadio Mane.”
