Leroy Sané will make his comeback in Manchester City jersey
Leroy Sané’s long period of suffering will probably finally come to an end on Friday evening. As Pep Guardiola proved in the afternoon, the english champions Manchester City’s flanker will make his long-awaited comeback after a serious injury.
208 days ago, Leroy Sané tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the Community Shield against Liverpool. Since then, the 24-year-old has been working on his comeback. Despite his long downtime, the German national player is always the focus of the public interest. Due to the change to the German record champions FC Bayern Munich, the convalescence of the ManCity star is also pursued with great curiosity from Germany.
As Manchester’s team manager Pep Guardiola explained at Friday’s press conference, a mandatory game of his is all in the way. Sané is expected to play in the U23 Premier League in the evening. The citizens’ junior team, called the Elite Development Squad (EDS), will compete in Arsenal’s U23 selection from 8pm.
“Leroy Sané will play at EDS. It’s always good for a player to come back and develop a better game,” the Spanish star coach said.
The Skyblues’ professional team will face the Gunners on Sunday night. After the great success in the Champions League quarter-final at Real Madrid (2-1), Sunday’s league game is the victory.
Leroy Sané has been under contract at Manchester City since 2016 and has played 89 Premier League games in which he scored 25 goals. In the current season he came on only one mandatory game, which came to an early end with the serious catastrophe in the eleventh minute.
