Manchester City star Leroy Sane comments on Kyle Walker's Instagram post after being left out of Germany's World Cup squad.

Manchester City star Leroy Sane has seemingly taken rejection from Germany's World Cup squad in his stride.

The 22-year-old was widely expected to be included in Joachim Low's setup given how impressive he was during City's Premier League title-winning campaign.

Sane scored 14 goals and created 19 assists, but he was the surprise omission from Low's 23-man squad for the tournament, which gets underway in Russia on June 14.

The City attacker has not spoken directly about the snub, but he did leave a comment on the Instagram page of club teammate Kyle Walker, who expressed his shock in Sane being left out.

When you find out @leroysane19 isn't going to the World Cup 😧

A post shared by Kyle Walker (@kylewalker2) on

According to The Mirror, Sane responded saying: "Well u're lucky that u don't have to play against me bro @kylewalker2."

Sane played more than an hour of Germany's 2-1 defeat to Austria in an international friendly last weekend.
