Leroy Sane is preparing with squad
Leroy Sane might return from injury when Bayern Munich face Eintracht Frankfurt this weekend, Hansi Flick confirmed. The German winger has made just three appearances for Bayern Munich since arriving from Manchester City in July in a deal that potentially worth €60 million. The 24-year-old has been sidelined since a 4-1 defeat to Hoffenheim on September 27th, having injured a right knee. While Leroy Sane returned to team training on Thursday and is available for selection, Serge Gnabry will sit Saturday’s game at the Allianz Arena after testing positive for the coronavirus. “Everyone is fit. Leroy Sane is in the squad. We’re on the right track,” Flick said on Friday. “We are not planning to start him and we have to go step by step. We have to wait for the game, but he is an option so we are happy about it.”
Corentin Tolisso has the quality and good long-range shooting results
“Gnabry will be out at the weekend. We have to wait and see when he can come back. We’re focused on Frankfurt with the players we have available.” Flick will be forced to switch midfield with a red-card suspended Corentin Tolisso in a 4-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld last weekend. In four appearances in the Bundesliga this season, Tolisso has already had as many shots goals three as he has managed in 13 league outings last term. The France international also averaged four more duels up to 13 from nine and contests won up to eight from four per 90 minutes than he did in 2019-20. “You can feel like he is enjoying his football,” Flick said. “Last season he had problems with injuries and then didn’t play too much.
“We sat down at the end of last season and talked. The way he plays now is how he played for Lyon. Weight fell off his shoulders; he is enjoying football. I’m glad he scored a goal; it gives him confidence. He has the quality and good long-range shooting results, but also in the box. He is too powerful. Frankfurt are unbeaten in their last eight Bundesliga games, avoiding losing their opening four of the season for the first time since 2012-13. However, Adi Hutter’s side have lost each of their last 12 competitive away games against Bayern Munich, conceding 40 goals and scoring just seven.
