Leroy Sané’s work with Miroslav Klose paid off for Bayern Munich

After missing a spell due to injury, Leroy Sane made a triumphant return for Bayern Munich.

One of the highlights of Bayern Munich’s 5-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt was the return of Leroy Sané.

Sané, whose long and frustrating transfer to Bayern Munich from Manchester City covered just about 15 months of rumors, was an enigma for the Bavarians at the start of the season before suffering a tear in a joint capsule. A dynamic, pacey presence on the wing, Sané is just one of many weapons that Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick can throw at opponents.

Having this type of player on the roster is surely nice for the 55-year-old coach:

Flick credited Sané’s work ethic and also one of Bayern Munich’s assistant coaches for helping the 24-year-old winger round back into form so quickly.

“He worked hard during the injury break,” said Flick per Abendzeitung. “He recently practiced with Miroslav Klose and that helped him today. We can continue like this.”

As far as Sané’s timetable for getting back into the starting XI goes, Flick would not commit to anything.

“We have to wait and see,” Flick stated.

With a Champions League tilt against Lokomotiv Moscow booked for Tuesday, it will be interesting to see if Flick opts to start Sané there or whether he waits until next weekend’s Bundesliga fixture against FC Köln.
