Leroy Sane Forces Match To Stop After Knocking Opponent Off His Feet With A Rocket Strike
Leroy Sane's powerful rocket of a strike connected with Matthias Ginter and sent the player crashing to the floor during Bayern Munich's 3-2 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach.
Monchengladbach welcomed the defending German champions to Borussia-Park for their Bundesliga clash on Friday.
Sane, who left Manchester City in 2020 to complete a sensational move to Bayern, forced the match to stop in the second half as his side trailed 3-2.
The 24-year-old German winger received the ball and decided to try his luck from 35 yards out.
However, Sane's powerful long-range shot was intercepted by Ginter's head, who immediately fell back into the box before the referee blew for his whistle.
Both Bayern and Monchengladbach players checked on the 26-year-old German centre-back as the referee called for assistance.
