Bayern Munich are believed to be unhappy with Senegal for selecting Sadio Mane in their World Cup squad, according to reports.
The former Liverpool man signed for the Bundesliga giants in the summer after spending six successful seasons at Anfield.
Mane won every major trophy possible during his spell on Merseyside, but opted for pastures new in Germany ahead of the current campaign.
During Bayern’s 6-1 win against Werder Bremen on Tuesday night, though, the winger suffered an injury to his fibula, sparking fears he could miss the World Cup.
However, Mane has still been included in Senegal’s squad for the tournament, a decision that has not gone down well with his club.
According to Christian Falk of German newspaper BILD, Bayern are ‘not happy’ with the inclusion of one of their star players considering his recent injury scare.
Despite fears over his fitness Mane, who scored three goals on the road to Senegal’s African Cup of Nations triumph earlier in the year, will soon be reunited with some of his compatriots and former Premier League counterparts.
Chelsea duo Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly have also been named in the squad, as well as Everton’s Idrissa Gana Gueye and Nottingham Forest’s Cheikhou Kouyate.

Senegal will kick-off their World Cup campaign with a tough test against the Netherlands, before facing hosts Qatar and Ecuador.
There is a chance that they could come up against England in the round of 16 should they progress, although this wouldn’t be the case should both teams finish either first or second in their respective groups.
