Leroy Sane blasted by Bayern Munich icon after Champions League exit

Bayern Munich legend Mehmet Scholl has torn into Leroy Sane following the Bundesliga club’s exit from the Champions League.

Bayern’s defence of their European crown came to an end at the quarter-final stages, with Paris Saint-Germain progressing on away goals.

Eric Choupo-Moting’s second-leg header was not enough for the Bavarians to overturn the 3-2 defeat they suffered at the Allianz Arena last week.

Sane played the full 90 minutes of the second leg at Parc des Princes but struggled to make his mark against a well-drilled PSG defence.

The winger was guilty of shooting when his teammates were in better positions and Scholl branded him an “unfinished” player in a scathing assessment.

“I’m overwhelmed, I don’t know. At 25 years of age, he’s still unfinished,” the former Bayern playmaker – who won the Champions League in 2001 – told German outlet Bild .

“When do I dribble? When do I pass the opponent on which side? The mix isn’t right yet, he still lacks structure.

“He’s gotten better overall and is getting more and more understanding of Bayern Munich, but he’s not quite as far as bang in a game like Arjen Robben or Franck Ribery were.”

Has Leroy Sane been a flop at Bayern Munich so far? Have your say in the comments.

Sane moved to the Allianz Arena in a £45million transfer from Manchester City last summer and has 19 goals or assists in 38 games this season.

The Germany international arrived just after Bayern had clinched the continental treble, but this campaign is proving to be much more underwhelming.

As well as exiting the Champions League, Hansi Flick’s side were knocked out of the DFB-Pokal by second-tier Holstein Kiel in January.

This means the only major honour still available to Bayern this season is the Bundesliga, where they have a five-point lead over RB Leipzig at the top of the table.

Sane has not scored in the top flight since 3 January and will be desparate to end his drought during the run-in.
