Sadio Mané is finally forfeited

Sadio Mané, the first star of Senegal, was forced to forfeit the World Cup (Qatar-2022), due to his right fibula injury, the Senegalese Football Federation announced on Thursday.

“Unfortunately, today’s (Thursday) MRI shows us that the evolution is not favorable as we imagined and we unfortunately resolve to declare Sadio’s withdrawal from the World Cup”said the doctor of the selection, Manuel Afonso.

“Surgical intervention should be scheduled very soon to operate on the player“says the doctor.

Since his injury on November 8 with his club Bayern Munich, during the victory against Bremen (6-1), on contact with Werder defender Amos Pieper, everything has been done to treat the N.10 of the “Lions of the Teranga”, but in vain.

Afonso traveled to Munich on November 10 and 11 to examine the player and consult the MRIs (magnetic resonance images) again.

It had been decided to carry out new MRIs on Thursday.

After the injury, Sadio Mané and his entourage first thought they had to forfeit, before regaining hope.

And, after the visit of the doctor of the selection, it was decided on November 10 to include him all the same in the list of 26 players selected for the World Cup.

Coach Aliou Cissé must now find a replacement for him, he has until Sunday, the day before Senegal enters the competition, against the Netherlands.
