Germany coach Joachim Low spoke of Sane’s 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.”
“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.”
