The winger had a stellar season in Pep Guardiola’s City team, scoring 14 goals and creating 17 assists.
The 22-year-old played a major role in the North-West outfit winning the Premier League title.
Many would have assumed that Sane was a shoe-in for the World Cup, but in a Germany team littered with talent, there was no room for the City star.

On Sunday, the reigning champions got their campaign underway with a Group F match against Mexico.
Prior to the tournament, there were zero concerns about Germany not making it past the group phase, but there may be a hint of worry now due to the team’s 1-0 defeat to Mexico.
Low’s side struggled to cope with the pace of Juan Carlos Osorio’s side as their counter-attacking approach led to a much-deserved win.
In fact, it was Hirving Lozano’s goal that ended up being the difference, and now City fans think that if Sane was on the pitch, the result would have transpired differently.
