Senegal’s biggest star is in question for the World Cup
In Senegal, they will use all possible methods, not even just medical ones, to get Sadio Mane on his feet for the World Cup. In addition, the local federation is ready to turn to local witches and shamans.
The Bayern forward was injured in Tuesday’s game against Werder Bremen and it is unclear whether he will be able to recover for the tournament in Qatar, although he will be included in the national team’s squad.
The local federation revealed that they will do everything possible and use extreme methods to recover Mane, who has a shin problem.
“We’re going to use witches who deal with healing. I don’t know if such methods are effective, but we just have no choice and we’re going to use them. We’re hoping for miracles. He just has to be there!” said Fatma Samoura, #2 in the local federation.
Senegal’s squad will be officially announced tomorrow and Senegal’s doctor has rushed to Munich to see how the player, who finished second in this year’s Ballon d’Or voting behind Karim Benzema, is doing.
Sadio Mane is Senegal’s biggest football star and led his country to African Cup of Nations triumph in February this year.
