The Senegalese secretary general of FIFA, Fatma Samoura has stated that Senegal will turn to witch doctors in an effort to get Sadio Mane to the World Cup in Qatar as quickly as possible.
Despite sustaining a leg injury this week, Mane is now expected to be included in Senegal’s World Cup team, a source within the national football federation told AFP on Thursday. Mane was initially predicted to miss the tournament.
His right fibula had been injured, according to the diagnosis. He would go through more testing, according to Bayern, in the upcoming days.
Mane “remains calm, he’s professional, and he realizes that injury is part of the job,” the insider claimed.
He will not play in Bayern’s last match before the World Cup on Saturday against Schalke.
