Leroy Sane gushes about ‘intuitive’ Harry Kane

Bayern Munich forward Leroy Sane has discussed the ‘intuitive’ understanding he shares with new teammate Harry Kane.

The duo of Harry Kane and Leroy Sane at Bayern has demonstrated a strong synergy, reminiscent of Kane’s successful collaboration with Heung-Min Son during his tenure at Tottenham.

Their on-field connection has been a significant factor in Bayern’s attacking success, both in domestic competitions and in European competitions, since Kane’s arrival from Tottenham in the summer transfer window. Now, Leroy Sane sheds some light on the situation.

Speaking to Bild, Sane said of the connection: “Harry is an incredible player — it’s a huge pleasure to play alongside him. He has an unbelievable understanding of the game. We have processes that we trained, we know in which spaces each of us stands. But sometimes we have to react to the situation because things that we didn’t discuss can happen. That’s intuition. For example when I run towards the left, he knows he has to go to the right. We complement each other well. He’s simply an incredible striker, one of the best in the world — if not the best.”

Sane compares Kane to greats like Lewandowski and Aguero

Sane has drawn comparisons between Harry Kane and other world-class strikers he has played alongside, such as Robert Lewandowski and Sergio Aguero. He praised the England captain for his exceptional playmaking skills, highlighting the distinct qualities that set him apart from other elite forwards.

“I’ve played with many world-class strikers. With Robert Lewandowski here and with Kun Agüero at City, they were different types of players. Harry often plays the last or penultimate pass before the shot. He does that incredibly well,” Sane analysed.

Kane has been in exceptional form for Bayern Munich, scoring 22 goals and providing eight assists in 20 matches since his €100 million (£86m/$110m) transfer from Tottenham. He aims to further contribute to his goal tally in Bayern’s upcoming match against VFB Stuttgart on Sunday.
