Manchester City have confirmed that Leroy Sane has suffered ankle ligament damage but have refused to put a timeline on when he might return to action.
The Germany international was injured by a reckless challenge from Cardiff City’s Joe Bennett on Sunday, who later apologised for his foul.
City have now issued a statement regarding the winger’s injury:
“Manchester City can confirm that winger Leroy Sane sustained ankle ligament damage during the FA Cup win over Cardiff.
“The Germany international was substituted off at half-time following a challenge from Bluebirds player Joe Bennett.
“Sane has since undergone scans that confirm the 22-year-old is set for a spell on the sidelines - although no timeline has yet been set for his return.”

Pep Guardiola said after the match he expected Sane to be out for upto a month and hopefully the problem is not too serious and he’ll be back soon.
Get well soon Leroy!
