Leroy Sane is careful of comparing his union with Serge Gnabry at Bayern Munich to that of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, with any discussion of following in the heist’s footsteps being ignored. The Bundesliga giants have prided themselves on finding significant firepower on the flanks lately. Robert Lewandowski is currently the top man down the middle, but a talented cast of wide men ably supports him. Kingsley Coman scored Bayern’s winning goal in the 2020 Champions League final. And Ivan Perisic was allowed to return to Inter at the end of the effective loan spell as his services are no longer required. That is because Sane was snatched from Manchester City, with the Germany international returning to his homeland after four years in England.
Leroy hopes that he will work well with Serge Gnabry
He already looks dangerous next to fellow winger Gnabry. With the last netting hat-trick at 8-0 mauling Schalke, while the former also got on the scoresheet. Comparisons with the legendary pairing of Robben and Ribery are already being made, with the iconic Frenchman telling reporters: “I like Sanabry very much”! However, Sane is reluctant to get involved in this debate, with the 24-year-old realizing that he and Gnabry have a lot to prove before they can claim to stand next to the two Bayern greats. He said, “I’m not going to allow comparisons to Robbery just yet”. The two of them have formed the club for a full decade at a world-class size. For us, only one match in the FC Bayern jersey has gone well so far”. Hoping to curb expectations at the Allianz Arena. Sane is confident that he will work well with Gnabry over the long term.
The couple have known each other since grabbing the same international youth sides. So now the senior scene has invited them to showcase their significant talent. “Contact with Serge has simply never been broken over the years,” Sane added. “We played together in youth squads for the DFB. Now we still get alongside very well on and off the field”. Bayern have a UEFA Super Cup match with Europa League winners Sevilla to take part on Thursday and then return to domestic duty with a trip to Hoffenheim on Sunday.
