Sadio Mane will be treated by witch doctors to ensure his presence on the big stage as Senegal attempts to recover from his injury in time for the World Cup.
The 30-year-old Bayern Munich forward suffered a fibula injury in the first half of Bayern Munich’s 6-1 victory over Werder Bremen on Tuesday, raising fears that he would miss the global competition.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding his recovery, Mane has been named to Senegal’s World Cup squad in Qatar.
Fatma Samoura, the first female FIFA Secretary General from Senegal, has stated that her country is willing to go to extreme measures to heal Mane.
She revealed that Senegal will try unconventional methods in the hope that they will be successful.
“We’re going to use witch doctors; I’m not sure if they’re effective, but we’re going to use them anyway in this case.” We are expecting miracles. He has to be there!” she exclaimed to Europe 1.
