Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sané has not been quite the surefire offensive player since his move from Manchester City in 2020 for €45 million (+ add-ons potentially reaching €60 million). Though he demonstrated glimpses of his immense potential, his attitude problems and lack of consistency in the past two years have brought him the stigma of being a tag-along with no signs of passion or willingness to lead.

Unfortunately, during my Audi Field visit when Bayern played D.C. United, Leroy Sané seemed unenthusiastic and lackluster. Oftentimes, his mimics and gestures confirm this impression, but the time for talking about a possible potential is over.
