Senegal blasted for Mane treatment

Senegal have been accused of putting their result in the AFCON against Cape Verde before Liverpool star Sadio Mane’s health following the forward’s concussion.

Speaking after Mane’s health scare, Headway deputy chief executive Luke Griggs said: “On the face of it, this seems to be yet another example of football putting results ahead of player safety.

“This was a sickening collision that clearly left both players in enough distress for a concussion to have surely been considered a possibility at the very least.

“At that point, the principle of ‘if in doubt, sit it out’ should have resulted in Mane being substituted without another ball being kicked.

“The image of the player collapsing on the ground and having to be helped from the pitch after scoring his goal should tell you everything you need to know about the impact and the effect it had had on his brain.

“Yet again, the desire to win is seen as being worth serious risks to players’ health. It is simply shocking that this continues to happen”
