Bayern Munich star Sadio Mane has been ruled out of the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

The Senegalese star has not recovered from an injury he picked up against Werder Bremen playing for Bayern Munich. The Senegalese FA have confirmed that the ex Liverpool forward will require surgery.

It is a devastating blow for both Mane and Senagal as the AFCON Champions were tipped by many to challenge some of the World’s best sides in Qatar.

Revered in his native Senegal for his footballing ability along with his notable charitable work, Mane will be just one of many players ruled put by injury. Christopher Nkunku suffered an injury for France after arriving to their camp in what was another huge loss ahead of the tournament.
