Leroy Sane surprisingly left out of Germany’s World Cup squad & Yaya Toure claims Pep Guardiola has problems with Africans

Yesterday, Joachim Löw announced his Germany squad for the World Cup. There was one hugely surprising omission from it, and that’s Man City winger, Leroy Sane. Why isn’t he going to the World Cup? It seems like madness.

The 22-year-old was one of the stand-out players in all of the Premier League last season, and won the Young Player of the Year award. He has been absolutely tremendous and would surely be one of the best players in the German team. He can change games instantly, and gives you so much from the left wing. He has the potential to be one of the best players around, and I think any team in the world would have been envious of Löw having him at his disposal. But the Germany boss has opted to leave him at home, and has brought Julian Draxler, Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus, Thomas Muller and Julian Brandt instead.

Löw explained his decision: “There are certainly better days in the life of a national coach than when you must send four great players home who would have deserved to be at a World Cup.

“You have to look at the big picture so we have a variable and well-balanced team prepared for all eventualities. We have good players on the wing in Thomas Müller and Marco Reus. Julian Draxler played a good Confed Cup and made progress there.

“It was a tight race between Leroy Sané and Julian Brandt. Both have big qualities, both are good in the one-on-one duels. Julian Brandt was at the Confed Cup, had some strong games there, and put in good shifts in the training camp too. Leroy Sané is a huge talent, no doubt, and he will be back with the team in September.”
