Mane Out of Qatar World Cup

Reigning African Champions have been dealt a huge blow as Sadio Mane has been ruled out of Qatar 2022.

According to reports coming out of Germany, Sadio Mane will not be able to play any part at the global football fiesta after limmping off 20 minutes into Bayern Munich's 6-1 rout of Werder Bremen on Tuesday night.

With two weeks to the world cup, the current African Footballer of the year is feared to have damaged his tendon meaning he will be out for several weeks.

Bayern boss, Julian Nagelsmann, said after the game that Mane would have an exray to determine how bad the injury is.

'He took a knock to the head of his tibia,' he said. 'It's always uncomfortable. He has to have an X-ray. I hope nothing is wrong.

'I didn't see him 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 has been in great form since joining Bayern Munich. He has contributed 11goals, 4 assists in 23 games in all competition.

This will come as a huge blow to Senegal's plans for the world cup.
