Manchester City star Leroy Sane has been sensationally axed from Germany’s World Cup squad for this summer’s tournament in Russia.
The 58-year old named his final 23-man squad on Monday and announced that Premier League Young Player of the Year Sane, along with Bernd Leno, Nils Peterson and Jonathan Tah, would not be making the cut.
Low explained: ‘That was a very close decision between him(Sane) and Julian Brandt, which was made in favor of Brandt.’
He continued: ‘There are certainly easier days in the life of a national team head coach than the day where I have to send four payers home.
‘These are four players who had merited their place in the provisional squad through their performances
‘I spoke to the four players and the disappointment was huge, as you would expect.
‘It’s as if you are stood at the check in desk for your flight to Moscow, but are then prevented from boarding.’
