According to Germany coach Joachim Low, Leroy Sane has ‘something extraordinary’
The former Schalke star has burst into life this season with five goals in his last seven games for City.
Germany coach Joachim Low had flown to Manchester to watch him play ahead of naming his squad for World Cup qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan.
And when asked about Leoy Sane, Low spoke of his great potential.
“He already has something extraordinary in the game and that speed that is needed internationally,” said Low.
“I was in Manchester last week and saw the game against Crystal Palace. Leroy has played very efficiently and has developed a lot.”
Sane was left out of the team by Guardiola at the start of the season, the manager revealing that he had a poor pre-season and ‘didn’t deserve to play’.
Sane had opted out of the Germany squad for the Confederations Cup in June in order to have surgery on his nose and correct a breathing problem.
But Low feels that he is progressing nicely under Guardiola’s guidance.
“I believe Leroy has matured in Manchester in the last year,” he said. “Thanks to the many games in the physical Premier League, he has developed in terms of assertiveness.
“And, moreover, he can make a difference in some games with his speed. If he continues to develop, he will be very happy to us in the future.”
