THE BIGGER PICTURE: Bayern will be hoping their quick and decisive action will put the matter to bed. Mane was all smiles as he took to training today, but the incident is a further blot on a frustrating season for the Senegalese star who has struggled with injuries, including a thigh injury that ruled him out of the World Cup.

WHAT NEXT: Bayern will continue their title push this Saturday without their star summer signing when they take on Hoffenheim at the Allianz Arena.
