FC Bayern Munich have officially confirmed that Sadio Mané will not be able to play for Senegal at the World Cup.
The 30-year-old suffered a leg injury earlier this month that will keep him out of the entire tournament.
“Sadio Mané underwent successful surgery in Innsbruck by Prof Christian Fink and Dr Andy Williams from London on Thursday evening,” said the club in a statement.
“During the operation, a tendon was reattached to the head of his right fibula. The FC Bayern forward will therefore no longer be available to play for Senegal at the World Cup and will begin his rehab in Munich in the next few days.”
According to Bild, Sané could be sidelined for up to three months, meaning he is a doubt for the first leg of Bayern’s Champions League round of 16 game against Paris Saint-Germain.
