Leroy Sane receives treatment during the Community Shield

Leroy Sane is facing around seven months on the sidelines with his anterior cruciate ligament injury, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed.

The Germany international was forced off after just 13 minutes of the Community Shield clash with Liverpool at Wembley last Sunday after a challenge with Trent Alexander-Arnold.

City confirmed this week that Sane will require surgery on his right ACL, although the club did not put a time frame on his recovery.

Guardiola, though, does not expect the winger to be available until at least February next year.

When asked if he had an estimate on Sane's recovery time, Guardiola said: "No, I don't know. I'm not a doctor or physio. Normally this type of injury is six, seven months; hopefully February, March he can come back with us."
