Just in time for the Real second leg: Sané is fitter than he has been for a long time

Leroy Sane

Leroy Sané has been plagued by a persistent pubic bone irritation for months. The 28-year-old has barely been able to train regularly in recent weeks and has only been used in Thomas Tuchel’s key matches. According to the latest reports, the FCB professional is now on the road to recovery.

Thomas Tuchel has repeatedly emphasised that Leroy Sané „has to grit his teeth“. The German international has been complaining of pubic bone pain for some time and, according to the Munich head coach, is unable to play or train without pain.

Munich have used Sané very sparingly recently; as a rule, the DFB star has been rested in the Bundesliga so that he is fit for the important Champions League duels. This plan has worked so far, but is not a permanent solution.

New therapy shows initial success

As reported by tz, Sané has been feeling „significantly better“ for just under a week. According to the report, the 28-year-old has changed his therapy. According to the newspaper, Sané has been treated with a conservative method for almost two weeks, in which the groin is opened up as much as possible by stretching. This has greatly improved Sané’s pain sensation.

This was one of the reasons why the winger made his first brief appearance in the Bundesliga since the end of March last weekend in the 3-1 draw in Stuttgart. Sané will continue his new programme over the next five to six weeks in close consultation with Bayern.

Not only the attacking player will be pleased with the recent progress, but Munich will also be relieved. FCB will need a fit Sané in Wednesday’s semi-final second leg against Real Madrid if they are to book their place in the Champions League final. Sané was one of Bayern’s best players in the first leg and scored, among other things, the important equaliser to make it 1-1 at the interval.
