Guardiola: Sane should be back in training with Man City by next week

Pep Guardiola says he expects Leroy Sane to return to full training "in another week", after missing the first half of the 2019-20 campaign due to knee ligament damage.

Sane hobbled off the pitch after just 10 minutes of City's Community Shield victory over Liverpool on August 4, with club doctors later confirming he had suffered an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury.

The 24-year-old was subsequently ruled out of action for six months, which came as a huge blow to the club given his contribution to their treble-winning 2018-19 season.

Sane scored ten goals and laid on ten assists during City's successful title defence, while also playing a key role in their Carabao Cup and FA Cup triumphs.
