Leroy Sane definitely wished for a completely different start to the 2019/20 season.
The young Manchester City winger suffered a serious injury during the game against Liverpool in the Community Shield clash and had to be taken off the pitch.
Pep Guardiola has since confirmed he will be out for at least six months, since that’s how long it usually takes for ligament injuries to completely heal.

That could ultimately leave Sane sidelined until February at best and he will miss at least half of the new campaign.
David Beckham, the Manchester United icon, shared a new Instagram snap with Sane and sent him a heartfelt message on social media.

Beckham emphasised how the Germany international is a brilliant player and assured him he’ll be back on the pitch in no time at all.
Coming from an ex-professional of Beckham’s prestige, these words will definitely give the 23-year-old a well needed morale boost during a dark period in his career.
Last season he was in exceptional form despite not being a regular starter, as he scored 16 goals and assisted 18 in a total of 47 games across all competitions.
