Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick is ready to give Leroy Sane another shot at improvement.
The winger’s performance at Bayern Munich has been on the down-low as he is trying to get back into form after his anterior cruciate ligament injury.
“He is 100 per cent fit. His efficiency is great,” he told a news conference.
“But like other players, he unnecessarily lost the ball a couple of times against Salzburg and in some instances, he didn’t quite pursue one-on-ones. There are reasons for it, and we talked about that. He will try to do better next time.
“When he comes on the pitch, he creates a certain dynamic in the team, increases it. In the last couple of games, he has always scored after being subbed in. That’s what makes him stand out and he has quality.
But the head coach is willing to give him a chance to improve and get ready to play better on the pitch. So far, Sane has made nine appearances, scored five goals with two assists this season.
“It is obvious that he still needs time after a long injury, and he will get that time. He works hard in training.
“We are pleased with him, but it is important that when he starts a game, he gives a 100 per cent. We are working on that.”
