Manchester City youngster Leroy Sane has revealed that playing under Pep Guardiola has significantly improved him as a player, Manchester Evening News reports.

21-year-old Sane has become an inseparable part of Guardiola’s selection this season, adding edge to the team in the final third. He has scored nine goals and assisted for three more in 32 appearances, a significant improvement from his time at German outfit Schalke. Sane thinks Guardiola’s pedantic know-how is responsible for the development.

“He has made me a more complete player.” He said. “Sometimes I have to play in the middle, against some teams, although mostly I play wide.

“He has made me look more at the details, to keep the ball better, to be more aggressive in my action when I get the ball.”

Guardiola bought Sane from Schalke in the summer for 37 million, no doubt spotting the youngster’s qualities from the Catalan’s stint in Germany.  According to Guardiola, Sane can go far in football.

He said earlier: “I think he has a lot of qualities, he’s so fast and runs in behind like few players in the world. But he’s just 21 years old, so the gap to become a really good player is still big.

“I can say that because I was the manager of the best player in history [Lionel Messi]. That’s why I know he can improve.”
