Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has announced that German star, Leroy Sane, is expected to be sidelined for seven months due to a knee ligament damage.
During the final interview ahead of the opening English Premier League (EPL) 2019-20 season, Guardiola was asked for an update on Sane's injury condition and if the young winger would be coming back soon, Guardiola replied the reporters saying: “I don’t know. Normally these kind of injuries takes six to seven months. Hopefully in February or March he can come back to us.”
Pep also denied rumours that the German winger had instigated for a move to Bayern Munich. There were concrete rumours on deadline day from Germany that the Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich, were deep in details for him but Guardiola has vividly denied these claims.
“I didn’t think he was leaving. He didn’t tell me he wanted to leave, he played the pre-season," Pep said.
The Bravians did their best to woo the 23-year-old back to his homeland, but discussions never got far, as Manchester City wouldn't want to sell their bright future star.
