Sadio Mane was reportedly seen smiling as he appeared at Bayern Munich’s training centre on Thursday morning, ahead of talks with club chiefs over his recent conduct.
Bayern forward Mane is said to have punched his team-mate, Leroy Sane, in a dressing room altercation that took place after their 3-0 defeat to Man City on Tuesday.
The incident reportedly left Sane with an injured lip and looks to have had serious consequences on Mane, who will face judgement from chiefs today.
Sky Sports Germany report that Mane will make an apology to the rest of the Bayern Munich squad later today, as club chiefs continue to assess the situation.
The outlet claim that Bayern’s bosses are weighing up sanctions such as fines, suspensions and even outright separation from the squad entirely, for the incident.
The team are set to start training at 11am on Thursday morning, yet Mane’s arrival – nearly two hours prior – suggests he will be in talks for club chiefs today.
The incident occurred shortly after Bayern’s humbling defeat to Premier League champions Manchester City, on Tuesday night.
As reported by Sportsmail, Bayern players had to separate the two wingers after an on-pitch argument spilled into the tunnel post-match.
In pictures that emerged on Thursday morning, German winger Sane appeared to cover his supposedly-injured lip from reporters, after landing back in Munich.
