Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has pulled out of the Germany squad "for private reasons" as  German FA (DFB) announced. 

The 22-year-old was controversially left of the Die Mannschaft team for this summer FIFA World as the dethroned world champions were eliminated in the group stage in Russia.

Sane has earned a recall to the national team for the two matches in the current international break but he features in the last seven minutes in the goalless draw against France in UEFA Nation League on Thursday.

The Premier League winner held talks with Germany coach Joachim Low after the match with the Les Blues at Allianz Arena and the Citzyen star will now miss the upcoming friendly game with Peru on Sunday at the home of Bundesliga club Hoffenheim.

However, the German national team confirmed Sane left the camp via their Twitter handle.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos recently question Sane character and attitude, while he has also fallen out of favour with City boss Pep Guardiola this season.
