Bayern Munich man Leroy Sane has praised the impact his former coach Pep Guardiola had on him.
During his time at Manchester City, the 25-year-old played 135 games and was an important player for Pep Guardiola even though he was sometimes injured.
Speaking the Der Spiegel, Sane has now revealed the impact Pep Guardiola had on him and how the coach helped him to become a better player.
“Pep and I had a good relationship,” Sane said.
“I saw Pep’s family in the building more often than Pep himself,” Sane added, recall he used to live in the same building with Pep Guardiola, IIkay Gundogan, and David Silva
“He wasn’t standing at the window waiting for us to come home in the evening to check on us! I thought it was great to live so close to my colleagues. It was a good neighborhood.
“He raised me to a completely new level. Mainly by working on little things: with which foot do I take the ball in which situation and how? What is the best action to open the space?
“Other coaches tell you that too, but he really did it every day until I did at some point have a little man in my ear with his voice that told me what to do when and how.”
Sane was asked what is really special about Guardiola and his reply was: “That he doesn’t stop when he sees that you’ve improved.
“He’ll find something new to work on with you tirelessly. If I hadn’t moved to Manchester, I probably wouldn’t have reached that level.”
