If Leroy Sane can maintain his Premier League form, he can become a star for both Manchester City and Germany, says Michael Tarnat.
The 21-year-old initially struggled to make an impact with City after joining from Schalke, due to his performance for Germany at the Euro 2016.
However after scoring his first goal for City against Arsenal in December, he seems to have found his form, as he scored in his next two appearances against Tottenham and Crystal Palace.
And Michael Tarnat who played for Bayern Munich and Manchester City has backed Sane to become a star for both club and country.
“Everybody looked at Leroy Sane last season in the Bundesliga,” Tarnat told Omnisport. “He made great games for Schalke and then took the step to go to Manchester City, which is a great club where top players are playing.
“He certainly struggled at the beginning to adapt to the league and the players. That was something that he probably underestimated in the beginning.
“But in the last games he has acclimatised and will be an important part of Man City and also for Pep Guardiola.
“He is incredibly fast, has a good technique and a good finish. I believe these are all his strengths.
“If you are fast, have a good shot and score goals this is a good argument to become a top player, and I think that he will be maturing in a foreign country over the next few years.
“Foreign culture will make him a bit more mature from the point of view of personality. I think he will also be an important part of the German national team in the next years.”
