Leroy Sane thinks it is starting to click for him at Manchester City and credits Raheem Sterling with helping him find his true form.
Leroy Sane had struggled to hit the ground running following his £37m move from Schalke in the summer.
Injury setbacks were partly to blame for his slow start to life in Manchester but since regaining full fitness, he has excited onlookers with his performances in an attacking role on the left win.
“At some stage it just clicked for me,” he told Sky Sports ahead of City’s clash with Sunderland
“I have understood the league and how the players play here, how the league works here. That is why I think I have got used to it and played better and better and got a real feel for it and then I just played the way I like to play and felt really good about it.”
“I actually think a lot of players have helped me, especially Sterling. He has spoken to me and said ‘continue to believe in yourself, you’re young, you have time, you will get your games’.
“The same with Pablo Zabaleta he said to me ‘keep going, work hard on your game.’
“I think that the whole team has always believed in me rather than believe in me, what I mean is they have helped me a lot in training they have always said ‘keep going’, they have helped me a lot in training.”
