Leroy Sane believes Chelsea to pose the biggest threat to Manchester City’s Premier League title defence next season.
Chelsea finished fifth last season, outside the Champions League places and 30 points adrift of Pep Guardiola‘s runaway champions.
Leroy Sane believes that the arrival of new manager Maurizio Sarri, who Man City faced twice in the Champions League last season when he was in charge of Napoli, will rejuvenate the Stamford Bridge side.
“I think Chelsea [will be the biggest threat to Man City] because they have brought a really good coach,” the Germany international told Sky Sports News.
“If you have seen how Napoli played last season, it was really, really attractive and really good. We really suffered against them.
“They will need some time to get really used to his tactics. They could be really tough. Also Liverpool too – they bought really good players. They could be really strong next season.”
