Some Manchester United fans are losing the plot a little on Twitter because Manchester City have dropped Leroy Sane from their squad today.
The Germany international was one of the star players of Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering Premier League champions last season, but it seems all is not well between the manager and the player at the Etihad Stadium.
Sane being left out of the squad today is supposedly down to his poor attitude in training, according to a report by the Mail, and a section of United fans are already throwing accusations around at the media and their ‘agenda’ against Jose Mourinho as a result.
Much is made of how Mourinho is often criticised for not trusting young players, with Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw among those to be seen as receiving harsh treatment from the Red Devils boss during his time in charge.
However, Guardiola clearly does it too after axing Sane, and these fans are crying out for justice…
Guardiola is treating Sane the exact same way Mourinho is treating Martial but guess which one the media will bitch over #MUFC

Pep Guardiola has dropped Leroy Sané from the squad and he hasn’t started in any of Manchester City’s first 3 games of the season, nothing said from the media. José Mourinho doesn’t start Anthony Martial vs Leicester,they says he’s destroying a great talent.
The agenda is real.

When will we start blaming Pep Guardiola for ruining Sane career by not picking him cuz his attitude is bad… or is that kind of blame only reserved for Jose Mourinho? #FanLiveNG

Is Guardiola destroying Sane? Why did he buy mahrez after Sane's impressive performance last season? Why didn't Sane play at the just concluded world Cup? The Narrative will be different if Mourinho was involved ? @__tunde https://t.co/PoylM4yMBV

Leroy Sane has been omitted from Manchester City matchday squad and Pep says he has 'poor attitude in training' and 'is not selected'. Sensible?
But now, same reasons given by a certain Jose Mourinho means he's destroying a young player's career.
English Media is a farce!

Leroy Sane left out of the City squad for a poor attitude. Imagine if it was Mourinho leaving out the PFA Young POTY from his squad. There would be a meltdown in the media

Surprised how no one is making a big deal over Sane and Pep’s deteriorating relationship. Probably because his name isn’t Mourinho?

Mourinho leaves martial out the squad the media are all over it pep leaves sane out the squad for a 3rd game doesn't get as much attention from the media ?

The media were really (and still are) slating Mourinho for benching Martial but they have not even bothered to do the same to Guardiola for the way he has frozen Sane out of the team at ManCity. He is not even on the City squad. Witch hunt tu.
