Pep Responds To Kroos' Criticism Of Sane

With Germany midfielder Toni Kroos recently questioning Leroy Sane's body language, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has now responded to the Real Madrid man's criticism of the Citizens star.

Sane had not started a single match for City this season until this past weekend, and was left out of Guardiola's previous matchday squad altogether before the international break.

Los Blancos midfielder Kroos recently suggested that Sane does not really mind whether he wins or loses, but Guardiola has now insisted there are no problems with the 22-year-old's attitude.

"His body language is the same as last season, and he was the best young player in the league," the Spanish tactician said, according to Sky Sports.

"Leroy was so important, is so important, and will be so important for the club. There's no doubt about that.

"It's a challenge for him – not just for him, for everybody. There's a lot of nice strikers and midfield players and the season will be judged in 11 months, not just in three weeks or one month.  

"He's a nice guy, so I don't have any bad words about him – we are here to try to help, not just him, but everybody."
