It was initially thought there was a more sinister reason behind Sane’s departure as the German FA only said it was for “personal reasons”
Leroy Sane has announced the arrival of his baby daughter a day after leaving Germany’s team hotel for “private reasons”.
The 22-year-old gave special thanks to Germany on social media for allowing him to withdraw from their friendly against Peru on Sunday.
The winger made an appearance from the bench in Thursday’s goalless UEFA Nations League draw at home to France after being surprisingly left out Germany’s World Cup squad in Russia.
Germany tweeted on Friday Sane has left the team hotel “for private reasons”.
However, this led to rumours it could have been a disciplinary issue as this came just days after Germany team-mate Toni Kroos questioned Sane’s attitude.
The £37million player has yet to make an appearance for Manchester City this season but Citizens boss Pep Guardiola dismissed suggestions he is unhappy with Sane’s commitment.
