Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane has revealed what it was like living in the same building as Pep Guardiola during his time at Manchester City.
There were a number of reports in the English media claiming that the pair did not always get along before the German winger's exit last year.
Sane has revealed that he got along with the Spanish tactician and revealed they used to live in the same building.
“Pep and I had a good relationship,” Sane told Der Spiegel.
"I saw Pep's family in the building more often than Pep himself," Sane said. "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 neighbourhood.
"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.”
