Bayern star Sane only '80 per cent fit' as he reflects on 'tough' year


Leroy Sane Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane says he is still some way from full fitness after admitting he has endured a “tough year”.

He was on the verge of making a comeback when the Premier League was shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic in March, meaning he did not pull on a sky blue shirt again until June, when he came on as a late substitute against Burnley in City’s first match of the restart.

Three days before that game City boss Pep Guardiola confirmed Sane hadrejected the offer of a new deal at the Etihad Stadium, meaning an exit was almost inevitable.

It was therefore no surprise when Sanecompleted a move to Bayerna short while later in a deal worth an initial €49m(£45m/$55m), putting pen to paper on a five-year deal with the Bundesliga giants.

The former Schalke forward admits he has found it difficult over the last 12 months, but feels he has emerged as a better player and person for the experience.

“First there was the cruciate ligament rupture, then the corona situation and, in the end, the move to Bayern Munich. It was a tough year, but a very, very good one to get to know me better personally,” he told the official DFBwebsite.

When asked about his fitness, Sane added: “I think I’m at 80 per cent. Clearly the games and the rhythm are missing, the last per cent will be added (once he gets playing regularly again)."

The winger has now linked up with the Germany squad for their Nations League ties against Spain and Switzerland.

It is 15 months since Sane earned the last of his 21 caps for Die Mannschaft, in an 8-0 victory against Estonia in qualifying for Euro 2020, so the 24-year-old is excited at the prospect of pulling on the white shirt once more.

"Everyone is happy to come together again and play for thenational team,” he said.
