“Sane has since un­der­gone scans that con­firm the 22-year-old is set for a spell on the side­lines - although no time­line has yet been set for his re­turn,” league lead­ers City said on their of­fi­cial web­site (

City man­ager Pep Guardi­ola was an­gered by Cardiff’s phys­i­cal ap­proach and said af­ter Sun­day’s game that Sane “will be out for a while, min­i­mum two to three weeks or a month”.

“I have said many times, all the ref­er­ees have to do is pro­tect the play­ers - not just the Manch­ester City play­ers, all play­ers,” added the Spa­niard.Sane has been on top form this sea­son with 11 goals and 14 as­sists in all com­pe­ti­tions as City com­pete for four tro­phies.
