Bayern drop Sadio Mané from squad for Saturday's game after punching Leroy Sané in the face

BERLIN - Bayern Munich's Sadio Mané will not be part of the squad for Saturday's Bundesliga game against Hoffenheim and has been fined over a row he had with teammate Leroy Sané, the club said on Thursday.

Senegal international Mané clashed with Sané at the end of their 3-0 loss at Manchester City in the Champions League quarterfinal first leg on Tuesday.

"Sadio Mané will not be included in the FC Bayern squad for this Saturday's home match against 1899 Hoffenheim," the club said in a statement. "This is due to his misconduct after Bayern's Champions League match at Manchester City. Mané will also be given a fine."

Bayern, who lead the Bundesliga standings with a two-point advantage over Borussia Dortmund, did not provide any details on the misconduct or the size of the fine.

According to several German media, Sané had suffered a cut lip in the altercation and the two, who were also seen arguing on the pitch late in the game, had to be separated by teammates.

They both trained together earlier on Thursday.
