Senegalese striker Sadio Mané, injured in the right fibula on November 8, will be insufficiently recovered to play in the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League in Paris, in ten days, explained Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann, this Friday .
“I expect him to be back in mid-February, or the end of February.
It's going well, he has no more pain.
But against Paris, he will miss the first leg, ”said Julian Nagelsmann, ahead of the 19th day of the German championship and a trip from Munich to Wolfsburg on Sunday.
Finalist of the C1 last season with Liverpool (defeat against Real Madrid) and second for the Ballon d'Or 2022 behind the Frenchman Karim Benzema, Sadio Mané should thus be available again in the Bavarian workforce for the round of 16 return against PSG, at the Allianz Arena on March 8.
Nagelsman doubts Mbappé's package
Mané injured his right fibula in the Bundesliga on November 8 against Werder Bremen.
Forced to forfeit the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he underwent surgery in mid-November and ran for the first time ten days ago, before touching the ball earlier this week.
In addition, Julian Nagelsman questions the package announced by Kylian Mbappé, victim of a
left thigh injury
, according to the PSG press release published Thursday, for this Champions League meeting.
I don't think he will be absent.
I don't know what it has, what it says on the website is vague.
I prepare for the match as if he was going to play, underlines the technician.
Of course they can play poker.
