After suffering an ACL injury during Manchester City’s Community Shield win over Liverpool, it has been revealed that Leroy Sane could be back sooner than expected, prompting some positivity mixed with a bit of cynicism from supporters.
Sane played a crucial role in City’s title clinch last season, scoring the winner at home to high-flying Liverpool, resulting in the Reds’ only Premier League loss in 2018/2019.
The winger also bagged City’s second goal at Old Trafford in their 2-0 derby win, with supporters currently missing that game-winning influence Sane brings to the team.
However, according to a report from The Sun’s Mike McGrath, it has been revealed that medical staff are pleased with the youngster’s progression and he could be back sooner than expected.
Of course, following the long-winded Bayern Munich transfer saga in the summer, some supporters were quick to point out that it could mean Sane will definitely be on his way out this season, but for now, Pep Guardiola needs every bit of talent he can muster to close the gap on his title rivals.
Here’s how fans responded to the optimistic news:
I’m sure Bayern will be over the moon with this
