Pep Guardiola says Leroy Sane must ‘move forward’ after being left out of Germany’s World Cup squad.

The winger has vowed that he will come back stronger after Joachim Low decided not to include him in his 23 man squad.

“I’m obviously disappointed I won’t participate in the World Cup but I have to accept this decision and I’ll give it my all to bounce back stronger!”

Guardiola, Sane’s boss at premier league champions Manchester City, has challenged the 22-year-old to go one better than he did last season and prove his worth to both club and country in the coming season.

“He’s so young and in two years it is another European Championships and then in four years another World Cup.

“Leroy has to accept it and move forward. He has the chance to show the national team from Germany and first of all us, he has another season to show his quality.”

Despite Sane having an outstanding season last campaign and winning the PFA young player of the year, Guardiola believes he still needs to improve his game.

“He has to improve his game, try to keep the levels he showed last season. We are so happy to have him here.”
