Leroy Sane backed up by Germany Twitter after Joe Bennett lunge in FA Cup

Manchester City's Leroy Sane was substituted at half-time after being fouled by Cardiff's Joe Bennett.
Leroy Sane endured some rough treatment in Manchester City's win over Cardiff.

World Cup holders Germany have told Cardiff to leave Leroy Sane alone.

The Manchester City forward was in fine form in Sunday's FA Cup stroll past Cardiff but had to take the rough with the smooth.

Cardiff's Joe Bennett was guilty of a particularly meaty challenge in the first half, catching Sane with a nasty challenge.

It was enough to alert Germany's Twitter account, and they posted: "Hey @CardiffCityFC. Just letting you know, we have a really important tournament in the summer. Please don't hurt our players. Thanks, #DieMannschaft #inSane."

Bennett escaped a red card for the tackle that left Pep Guardiola fuming but the Cardiff man eventually saw red late on as City clinched a 2-0 win to progress to the fifth round.
