Sane has lost his loan.
Munich – Joachim Löw leaves Leroy Sane out of the running in the World Cup. There are not only sporting reasons for this. At Manchester City, the star has to deliver now. But the competition is fierce. City coach Pep Guardiola offers an option for his top-notch attacking squad from AS Monaco, which cost 50 million euros as much as Sane did last summer, so Sane has to go the extra mile to build on his strong debut season (37 games, nine goals, eight goals) – and a chance to win the title. It was striking that he was not even part of the U21 squad, which in turn played qualifying matches at the same time, and that there has been a certain amount of scepticism about Sane at the DFB since the European Championship in 2016. Löw had honored the youngster’s strong form and called him into the squad at the last moment. The people responsible assumed that Sane saw the nomination as a reward, and that Sane thought it would be a special treat, but instead the former French stalker was relaxed and relaxed on the training ground, an impression he sometimes left in Gelsenkirchen.”Leroy was and is a boy with a great deal of composure and lure. His attitude was always good, but not maximum,”said his youth coach Norbert Elgert once about him, and Löw acknowledged Sanes’s performance with a seat on the bench. Only when the semi-final was over against the host Sane was allowed to play for eleven minutes plus extra time, and this summer Löw gave the left-foot a new chance. In the absence of many regular players, he invited the wing player to the Confed Cup games, but because the offensive man preferred to have a long overdue operation on the nasal septum, Löw decided to cancel the event, saying,”I would have liked to have been in Russia,” said Sane. He presented his new tattoo, a picture of himself that stretches across his entire back, an international player who cancels for medical reasons and then has his ego engraved as a large-scale tattoo, and the official national team officials have received the photo exactly as you would expect it to be. Sanes England-changes, however, is sceptical about the DFB’s sporting leadership:”I would have found it better if it had developed further in Germany. That would have been good for him himself,”said team manager Oliver Bierhoff once, and Bayern boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was even more severe at the time. FC Bayern, for its part, had long sought Sane. When the transfer was over, Rummenigge said:”A young player has to decide whether he wants to plan his career sportily or financially”On Saturday, Sane will meet Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool FC (from 1.30 pm in the LIVETICKER) together with City. A fitting frame to put the spotlight back on sport. If Guardiola lets him in.
