According to reports, “Nagelsmann said that Mane took a knock to the head of his tibia. It’s always uncomfortable, he has to have an X-ray. I hope nothing is wrong.”
“I didn’t see him after the game, I hope it’s not a big injury, but I don’t know at the moment”, the Bayern boss continued. “We will see tomorrow and then give an update”.
15 minutes into the Werder Bremen match the 30-year old went down, holding his right leg and signaling for the medical team to come into the pitch.
