Man City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan confident Germany fans are behind him

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is happy with his Germany return this week.

For their draw with France, Gundogan believes his reappearance in a German shirt marks a change in the strained relationship with fans that followed his controversial meeting alongside Mesut Ozil with Turkish President Recep Erdogan.

"I can go home with a smile," said Gundogan.

"I was very pleased there was a lot of applause, I was able to respond and concentrate on the game from that moment."
