Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has said that Leroy Sane will be out for up to six weeks after picking up an ankle injury against Cardiff City.

The club confirmed yesterday that Sane had suffered ankle ligament damage and Pep has now given an update on the young winger.

The news will be a blow to City with Sane now set to miss the Carabao Cup final and probably both legs of the Champions League clash against FC Basel.

Sane will also likely sit out the FA Cup fifth round clash against Wigan Athletic and Premier League fixtures against Arsenal and Chelsea.

Let’s hope Sane can make a quick and full recovery and get back into action as soon as possible.
