According to Planet Sport, Kane has now hailed Sane as Bayern Munich’s best player this season, describing the former Manchester City star as the man to lift the team even when the chips are down.
“He has great pace and outstanding power. Leroy is probably our best player so far this season. He is fantastic. Even today, when it was 2-2, I had the feeling that he was the player who would lift us up again.
“He is such an important player for us with his skills. Today, he made two assists for me again, which is great. I hope we keep this connection.
