Leroy Sane shows off busted lip for first time after being punched by Bayern Munich team-mate Sadio Mane | The Sun
LEROY SANE has shown off his busted lip for the first time.
That’s after allegedly being punched by Bayern Munich teammate Sadio Mane.
Tempers flared on the pitch as the duo clashed during their side’s 3-0 Champions League defeat to Manchester City.
And the argument continued in the dressing room afterwards, with Mane reportedly striking Sane in the face.
The ex-Liverpool star has since been suspended by Bayern.
And Sane did not reveal the full extent of the damage after covering his face when returning to Germany this week.

But there was nowhere to hide on Saturday when Sane was named in Bayern’s starting XI to take on Hoffenheim.
The winger’s top lip was clearly bruised and swollen as he was snapped by cameras during the warm-up.
However, Sane appeared to be in fine spirits as he lined up in attack for Thomas Tuchel’s side today.
Bayern thought they'd put their European woes behind them by taking a 17th minute lead at the Allianz Arena through Benjamin Pavard.

But a promising afternoon turned sour as Hoffenheim pulled one back in the 71st minute for a 1-1 draw.
It was not the result Bayern were looking for ahead of their second leg against City next week.
They face a near-impossible task to turn things around, with City dreaming of their first Champions League triumph.
And it remains to be seen if Mane is recalled by Tuchel for the crunch clash next week.
