Manchester City exciting winger Leroy Sane has been ruled out for six weeks with ankle ligament damage suffered in his side’s FA Cup win at Cardiff on Sunday.
The Germany winger, 22, was injured in a challenge by Cardiff’s Joe Bennett and was substituted in the 2-0 win.
He will miss the EFL Cup final against Arsenal on February 25 and is likely to be out of both legs of City’s last-16 Champions League tie with Basel.
A six-week absence would also see him miss Premier League games against West Brom, Burnley, Leicester, Arsenal and Chelsea as well as the FA Cup fifth-round tie at Wigan.
City manager Pep Guardiola urged referees to “protect” players following the incident, but Cardiff boss Neil Warnock said such tackles should be expected in English football.
Sane has been in electric form for City this season with 11 goals and 14 assists which has helped Guardiola’s men to the top of the Premier League table.
Manchester City are still in the picture to win four trophies as they are going strong in the Premier League, Final of the League, fifth round of the FA Cup and Round of 16 of the Champions League.
