Germany international Leroy Sane has explained why he decided to leave Premier League giants Manchester City for Bayern Munich.
Sane made the switch to the Bundesliga champions earlier this month in a deal reportedly worth €45 million after spending four years in Manchester.
The 24-year-old was full of kind words for City manager Pep Guardiola and insists the Spaniard was not the reason for his departure.
“I think he improved me a lot. When I came to Manchester City I was 19 and I had just had one full season where I had played here in Germany and there was a lot to improve and in every area," Sane said, as per Goal.
“I can say I improved in every single area with him, doesn’t matter what it is – technically, the positional game, my whole game changed a lot because of the way he works and how he wants me to play. He brought me onto a completely different level.
“Obviously we won a lot in these four years but Bayern Munich also won a lot! I just had a personal feeling for myself.
“It was not anything about Man City or anything else – because we’d now won everything or I’d now lost the hunger or anything [like that]. It was just me personally. I just had a feeling and that’s why I came to this decision.”
