Leroy Sane just returned from fitness before football was postponed due to the coronavirus epidemic. He started training with the team earlier this season and needed to be reinstated before the break-in.
That, of course, has been put on hold, but as Ilkay Gundogan explained this week, Sane feels good and can use the extra time to focus on getting back into full fitness before football returns.
“It feels good,” said the Manchester City midfielder. “It was a strange situation for him because he was close enough to come back, but from my experience with all the injuries I have had, especially the first few weeks about to be back on the field . with the team is a difficult situation because you have different feelings in your body and your body has to get used to it.
“With the exercises and all the workouts, you can’t be really 100% ready when you’re not on your pace. Leroy was just to the point where he still felt a little weird, not 100% ready, but obviously he was so motivated to come back and do well.
“He’s also a little frustrated that we’ve canceled everything yet but on the other hand you can also use the time now to work on the things he struggled with a bit and I see him doing good exercises in the gym, so it’s a weird situation for him, I guess. “
