Sadio Mané, launched for a great year in 2022, but an injury spoiled the results of the year for the star who missed the World Cup. So What should we expect from the year 2023 for the African champion?

It is without a doubt the best season of his career which has changed ten days before the World Cup. So far, Sadio Mané had lived a year rich in emotions.

His performances in selection gave him a sacred history at the AFCON, but also a qualification for the World Cup.

In club, Mané first approached two huge trophies (Premier League and Champions League) before a high-sounding transfer to Bayern Munich, to take up another major challenge.

But then everything went wrong.
On November 8, 2022, when what looked like a trivial blow received then turned into a serious injury to the patellar tendon.

With the implacable verdict of a package for the World Cup. Senegal was therefore forced, for a competition that ended in the round of 16, to do without its great game leader, the one who first offered Senegal the first African Cup.

After injury what year 2023 for Sadio Mané?

Before considering shining on the lawns, Sadio Mané must first treat himself. An absence of several months was mentioned at the time of his final package for the World Cup.

The return of Mané is therefore uncertain, especially in anticipation of the knockout stages of the Champions League against PSG in mid-February.

Once back, the Senegalese striker will have to confirm his adaptation to the Bavarian club which still needed to be perfected.

With a Senegal, now African champion and eighth finalist, of the World Cup, Mané will necessarily have great ambitions which will go through successful qualifications for the next African Cup. With the quest for a double in sight for the lions of Teranga.
