Leroy Sane has vowed to come back stronger after revealing his disappointment at being excluded from Germany's World Cup squad.
The winger was a surprise omission from Joachim Low's 23-man squad for the tournament in Russia, having had an impressive season for Manchester City.
Sane was a key member of a City side who won the Premier League title with a record 100 points and was named the PFA Young Player of the Year.
Sane, who scored 10 goals and provided 15 assists in 28 games for City during the season, was one of four players who failed to make the final cut, along with Bernd Leno, Jonathan Tah and Nils Petersen.
In a post on his official Twitter page, the 22-year-old wrote: "Thank you so much everyone for your encouraging messages yesterday and today.
"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!
"Nothing but the best of success to the DFB [Germany] Team in Russia. Go get that title!"
