Leroy Sané has said that moving to Manchester City from Schalke was an ‘quick decision’ due to the opportunity of working with Pep Guardiola and quality players.

Speaking to the official Manchester City website, Leroy Sané said:

“I am enjoying it a lot at City. It’s a very big club. All the people who work here are good people and they have helped me a lot.

“I enjoy it because I am playing, I have a very good trainer and I play with very good team-mates – David Silva, Yaya Toure, Kevin De Bruyne – they are all very, very good players and I can learn a lot from them.

“All the people who work here for the club want the club to get bigger and bigger and bigger. That’s a very good thing. All the people help the players. Also, the players that have come here also want to win for the club – the Premier League, the Champions League – and I think that’s great.

“Here, the quality is incredible. All the players at City are famous players who play for their national team. So the technical quality here is high.

“David Silva has impressed me a lot because if you see how he plays, he always knows what he has to do next.

“He’s one of the players that really impressed me so far. He can read the game very well.”

Talking about Pep Guardiola, Leroy Sané said his move from Schalke was a very quick decision:

“It feels very, very good [to be wanted by Guardiola]. I was very happy when I found out he wanted me to play for him at Manchester City. It was a very quick decision for me to say I wanted to come here.

“He spoke with me before I signed and said he wanted to make me a better player, to improve areas I am not good in. That’s why I chose Manchester City.”
