What happened between the two?

The supposed 'bust-up' is said to have occurred after the second-leg Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain.

The publication reported that the former Liverpool forward was unhappy that Nagelsmann only brought him on late in the game against the French side.

Mane was brought on in the 82nd minute of the game, which Bayern won 2-0. He even scored a late goal but it was chalked off because he was deemed offside.

The article further stated that Nagelsmann seemed intimidated as the attacker confronted him in the dressing room over his lack of game time.

Mane has only recently returned from an injury which kept him out of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Liverpool fans remain doubtful

With the news currently making headlines, it is the Liverpool fans who remain the most skeptical about the reports, Liverpool Echo reported.

Many were surprised by the news, calling it quite uncharacteristic of the Senegalese star.

With Mane developing a reputation for being one of the nicest guys at Liverpool, fans of the Anfield club couldn’t believe he would now be involved in altercations with a manager.

Mane wants to prove himself

Sports Brief also reported that Mane wants to prove himself to the newly appointed Bayern Munich boss, Tuchel.

The Senegalese star has battled for form and consistency since his move from Liverpool at the end of last season.

With a new manager now in charge, Mane wants to prove to the club they didn’t make a mistake in signing him on.
