Leroy Sane uploads heartfelt Instagram post after Germany snub

The 22-year-old was a shock omission from Joachim Low's final 23-man party for the tournament in Russian Federation, having starred in City's record-breaking Premier League campaign and been a regular in Germany's recent matches.

However, Joachim Low chose to pick Julian Brandt over Sane for this summer's tournament in Russian Federation and the manager tried his best to explain the controversial decision.

Meanwhile, there are three Premier League players in the squad, namely, Arsenal's Mesut Ozil, Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger and Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan.

A change in Sane's attitude was noticed by the coaching staff in team meetings with the player coming off of winning the English Premiership with City and being named the PFA's Young Player of the Year.

Leroy Sane vowed to "bounce back stronger" after his shock omission from Germany's World Cup squad. "Leroy has a huge talent", he said. He will be back again from September.

'Nothing but the best of success to the Germany in Russian Federation. "Go get that title". He had not arrived in global matches yet.

"I always thought I would be going to the World Cup and I didn't want to take any risk", Neuer said.

But his form was not enough to earn him a place in boss Low's plans for the World Cup which kicks off next Thursday.

Sane contributed 14 goals to the City cause during a record-breaking campaign, while also providing 17 assists across England's top-flight and the Champions League.
