Bayern Munich ace backs Leroy Sane to rediscover his form

Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has backed compatriot Leroy Sane to rediscover his form for club and country during the ongoing campaign. The Germany international enjoyed a top season with Manchester City last season where he contributed 10 goals and 15 assists en route to their Premier League crown but he was still surprisingly excluded from the country’s squad for the summer World Cup.

Since then, Sane has not enjoyed a good return with the Citizens with just one start in the Community Shield but Muller has backed him to come good over the course of the season, he told Bild: “He’s an exceptional talent with abilities that only very few people possess. I think Leroy is mature enough, and I have great confidence in him for the future. [It’s the team’s responsibility] that we help him to reach his optimum level of performance with the national team.”

Despite struggling for a starting spot with City, “Sane was recalled to the national team for the recent internationals versus France “ and Peru but he managed onlyto make a substitute appearance against the former before taking up personal leave to witness the birth of his daughter. Sane has now returned to“ City for training ahead “ of the forthcoming fixtures and it will be interesting to see whether he can impress Pep Guardiola enough to make the matchday squad against Fulham this weekend.

Sane was surprisingly excluded from the 18-man squad during the recent Premier League game against Newcastle United before the international break and speaking after that match, Guardiola confirmed that the German had indeed been dropped after looking off-colour during the opening weeks of the campaign. Manchester City are currently fourth in the standings with 10 points with only setback coming at Wolverhampton Wanderers where they settled for a 1-1 stalemate.
