Manchester City forward Leroy Sane has returned to full training following a knee ligament injury he suffered back in August.
Sane underwent anterior cruciate ligament surgery after being taken off 13 minutes into City’s Community Shield win over Liverpool.

On Tuesday, he was pictured back in training with his City team-mates ahead of their League Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester United at the Etihad.
However, the match will come too soon for Sane, but his return bolsters Pep Guardiola’s squad ahead of a key set of fixtures.
After United, City head to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on February 2nd before hosting West Ham a week later.
Following the winter break, City then travel to Leicester City on February 22 before flying to Spain for the Champions League last-16 first-leg tie against Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, the Carabao Cup final falls on March 1, meaning Sane will hope his team-mates can defend their 3-1 lead over United with a date at Wembley insight.
In the summer, Sane was linked with a return to Germany before picking up the injury.
That spell on the sidelines saw Bayern Munich cool their interest, with the Bundesliga champions going on to hold preliminary talks with Wilfried Zaha’s representatives earlier this month.
Sky Sports News reported it appeared unlikely Bayern would sign Zaha in January, despite the Crystal Palace’ winger’s decision to hire super-agent Pini Zahavi.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
