🗣️ Leroy Sane thanks Guardiola after Bayern Munich switch

Leroy Sane has thanked Pep Guardiola for making him the player he has become after completing his move from Manchester City to Bayern Munich. 

Sane was unveiled by Munich today after signing a five-year deal until 30th June 2025 and is expected to join his new teammates next week. The Germany international, who has only played two times for City this season due to a serious knee injury, was out of contract next summer, but keen on a return to his homeland.

"FC Bayern is a great club with big goals - and these goals suit me as well. I'm looking forward to the new challenge and can't wait to train with the team," he told Bayern's official website. 

"I know (coach) Hansi Flick from the U21 national team, we had a very good relationship there. I want to win as many trophies as possible with FC Bayern, and the Champions League is the top priority."

He then tweeted: "First of all, thank you Citizens. Thanks so much for the great time and all the support over the last four years. It has been a really intense and successful time which I surely won't forget.

"We won many games, scored a ton of goals, broke a couple of records, and celebrated seven trophies together. Thanks to all the fans, to the staff and to my team-mates! I will always remember this time with great joy and pride.

"Also thanks to my coach who has made me a better player and has a large share of my PFA Player of the Year award 2018. I've learned a lot and I'm very proud to have been part of this journey."

Sane's four years at the Etihad Stadium were a success as he scored 39 goals in 135 appearances, with 45 assists. He won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups.
