The mystery of Leroy Sane’s sudden departure from Germany’s League of Nations squad has been solved as it has been revealed he has become a father.

Sane, who was recalled to the Germany squad after being omitted for the World Cup, left the team hotel citing ‘personal reasons’ for his early leave. However it has now been revealed that the Manchester City star left so he could be with his girlfriend as she gave birth to their daughter.

Speaking on Saturday, Sane said he was “Incredibly happy to let you know about the birth of my daughter last night,” and thank manager Joachim Low for allowing him to be at the birth.

The winger has come under fire recently from Germany midfielder Toni Kroos, who stated Sane’s attitude must improve if he is to fulfil his potential, and is yet to start a game for the blues this season.

Congratulations to Leroy and his girlfriend on the birth from all at Bitter and Blue.
