Yet, he had a disappointing first campaign in Bavaria. This season, though, it has been a different story. Hansi Flick left Bayern at the end of last season to take charge of the German national team, with Julian Nagelsmann coming in to replace him.

Sane is the biggest sale that Pep Guardiola has had as a head coach

There was a lot of hope that Leroy Sane would fill the void left by Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery when he joined Bayern Munich from Manchester City for 60 million euros in the summer of 2020. Yet, he had a disappointing first campaign in Bavaria. This season, though, it has been a different story. Hansi Flick left Bayern at the end of last season to take charge of the German national team, with Julian Nagelsmann coming in to replace him. Since then, Sane has displayed the talent that was clearly visible during his days at City.

 

The 60 million euro fee that City received for Sane is the biggest sale that Pep Guardiola has had as a head coach, as the German winger made clear to the English club that he was not going to renew his contract at the Etihad Stadium.

Leroy showed great strength of character

Bayern believed that they were getting a world-class player in Sane and made a big push to secure his arrival, but he received criticism after his first season at the club. However, now it is a different story. Sane has scored 12 goals and provided 13 assists in 28 games in all competitions so far this season, while his performances in the Champions League, in which he has five goals and four assists in six games, have earned him praise around Europe once again. The impact of Nagelsmann on Sane has been vital, with the Bayern boss getting him to play more inside than he did last season.

 

“We didn’t give him any special treatment. He showed great strength of character to turn the situation around,” Nagelsmann said when asked about Sane. “If he plays more on the inside, he is more involved and has to cover shorter distances when pressing and counter-attacking.” Bayern will be hoping that Sane can keep up this form when the latter stages of the Champions League come around, with the German club set to face Red Bull Salzburg in the last 16 on February 16 and March 8.
