What’s wrong with Leroy Sané (26)? He definitely didn’t feel like going to a party…
At the town hall reception with Munich Mayor Dieter Reiter (63/SPD) in the large meeting room, the wing racer was at the very edge of the stage. You could see: the 49 million star wasn’t in the mood for jubilation, hustle and bustle.
On the way to the balcony he ate a roll, drank juice, sat down on a window sill outside as soon as he was called. Even his buddy Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (33) did not encourage him to celebrate!

He also made a similar appearance the night before at the Paulaner Fan Festival in Nockherberg: The national player only stood in the corner on stage and was not even called by name by stadium announcer Stephan Lehmann (59) – in contrast to all the other players.
In the second half of the season, the winger was completely beside himself most of the time, which is why he lost his starting eleven place to Kingsley Coman (25) and Serge Gnabry (26).
Even at the season finale in Wolfsburg (2: 2), Sané (came from Manchester City in 2020 for a fee of around 50 million euros) did not seem particularly motivated. Striking: Sané, who was back in the squad after a cold, was the last to come onto the pitch to warm up before the game, and it was over after just under ten minutes. Sané shuffled towards the cabin. During the game he kept yawning extensively on the bench.
In the 67th minute, the attacker came into play for Gnabry and had a huge chance to make it 3-2 in the 88th minute. After a Lewandowski pass into Sané’s run, he is alone in front of VfL keeper Casteels, only has to push in – and forgives miserably. He shoots the ball from a few meters past the goal. Exemplary for the Sané low…
When the pros went to the fans after the whistle, Sané and his buddy Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting (33) were the last to follow. At the subsequent Paulaner fan celebration at the Nockherberg in Munich, the national player was only standing in the corner on stage and was not even called by name by stadium announcer Stephan Lehmann (59), in contrast to all the other players.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann (34) continues to believe in the Sané explosion: “I’m very confident that he’ll start again next year because he’s an exceptionally good player.”
In the course of the first half of the season, Sané had shown what he was made of. After a total of eleven goals and eleven assists, BILD made him the player of the first half of the season. Sané (contract until 2025) should deliver these services consistently in the coming season.
Sport director Hasan Salihamidzic (45) recently called for this: “If he doesn’t have the tension, then I just don’t like it. That’s what I don’t want as the person responsible. Not only we in the management level, but also the coach and the team expect it to explode.”
A similar demand was made by “Brazzo” to Sané a year ago…
