Leroy Sane

Along with Harry Kane, Leroy Sane has been terrorising Bundesliga defenses during the Hinrunde. The German forward has been one of the best wingers in Europe as he has found a way to bring consistency in performances and good output in the final third together this season.

Sane has predominantly played on the left flank under Tuchel. A consistent role and extended run in the team has helped the German winger to deliver his best performances for Bayern. He has struggled for consistency in the last three seasons, but Tuchel has managed to get the tune of him this season.

The former Manchester City winger has the most assists in the Bundesliga- -eight. He has also found the back of the net eight times this campaign. Sane is also leading the table for most dribbles and chances created in the Bundesliga. The 27-year-old winger also has completed most dribbles in the league.

The German international has instantly formed a good partnership with Kane this season. He did have a quiet end to the Hinrunde in terms of goals and assists, but his performances have been fairly good in the last few games. Sane is a more complete winger this campaign since he is also working hard defensively. If Sane continues to shine in the second half of the season, he will be in the running to become Bayern’s player of the season.
