Vmmon module not loaded

Hello everyone,
I’m using kernel 5.8
I installed vmware(the latest version) but when starting a virtual machine, it says:

Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory.
Please make sure that the kernel module `vmmon' is loaded.

Then I tried to run this command sudo modprobe -a vmw_vmci vmmon, but it said:

modprobe: WARNING: Module vmmon not found in directory /lib/modules/5.8.1-3-MANJARO

The weird thing is that with kernel 5.7 everything is OK

Vmware isn’t compatible with kernel 5.8 and won’t be until the next version of Vmware unfortunately. Im running Vmware fine on kernel 5.7 though so just roll back the kernel

Oh thanks for your help
