As we've discussed here earlier, Leroy Sané is yet to be the player we expect him to be at Manchester City. The Schalke 04 wonderkid came in with a lot of hype, but he hasn't done much to justify it. He already is a Germany international, but needs to improve his performances for his club in order to keep being called up to represent his country.

But Germany manager Joachim Löw is not worried about Sané's slow start, and is confident in the player's development, for one very simple reason: Pep Guardiola.

"With Pep Guardiola we know that he has taken care of young players. He does not burn them out and operates with them with clear analysis. There is a clear plan for Leroy."

Sané has struggled to find his place on the first team in the first few months of his City career after arriving injured at the club, and the young German is yet to make any meaningful impact. But Guardiola does love to work with young players and turn them into beasts (see Pedro and Busquets at Barcelona, Douglas Costa and Coman at Bayern), and he'll probably do the same with Our Boy Leroy.

If Pep is successful working with Sané, then Löw can be happy as well.
