Manchester City are dealt major injury blow: Sane could be out until March

Manchester City have been dealt with major injury blow as Pep Guardiola revealed that Leroy Sane could be out until March with knee ligament damage. The 23-year-old twisted his knee and had to be substituted in the early minutes of City’s penalty shoot-out victory over Liverpool at Wembley. “Normally this kind of injury in the ACL is six or seven months, hopefully in February or March he can be back with us,” the City manager said as the champions prepare to begin their title defence at West Ham United on Saturday lunchtime. “I didn’t think about him leaving. Always I said he’s our player and he didn’t tell me he wanted to leave, always I thought he was ours “In the final [Community Shield] he played. It’s bad news as in three seasons we’ve had three ACLs. He’s young and he will recover well hopefully in terms of the surgery next week. All the people will help him, he will feel alone and we help him to feel as comfortable as possible. “In the first season we didn’t have Gundo, then Benjamin. We played with [Fabian] Delph and Aleks (Oleksandr Zinchenko], they weren’t left backs, now Leroy. We feel we are here and we are going to help him.”
