Ex-Coach to Sané: “Had to learn to deal with the hype”
Leroy Sané is the spectacular signing of FC Bayern Munich for the upcoming Bundesliga season. The two-time English champion, who was most recently signed by Manchester City, once matured into a professional with league rival FC Schalke 04. Under André Breitenreiter, the left-winger made the final breakthrough to the Bundesliga professional in the 2015/2016 season. Having previously appeared as a substitute, Breitenreiter fully relied on the services of the arrow-fast outsider. In
conversation with the “kicker”, the currently unincorporated football teacher remembers his most talented protégé: “This year I accompanied him on his way up. Through his further development and performance, he increased his market value from four million to a transfer proceeds of 55 million and became an A-international player. This not only made him but also me very proud,” Breitenreiter remembered the 2015/2016 season.
