Leroy Sane has withdrawn from Germany’s squad for the Confederations Cup.
The 21-year-old winger is to undergo surgery on his nose and will therefore sit out the tournament in Russia, which begins on June 17.
“I decided, in consultation with the doctors, to use the summer break for this procedure so I can start the new season with a clean bill of health.”
Germany have not yet named a replacement for Sane but do not have to submit their final squad for the tournament until June 7.
The world champions face Cameroon, Chile and Australia in their group.
