Robert Lewandowski has vowed to constantly push new Bayern Munich team-mate Leroy Sane in training to ensure he fulfills his undoubted potential.

The 24-year-old moved back to his native Germany this summer after completing a £55million transfer from Manchester City. 

Sane fell out of favour under Pep Guardiola at City and looked likely to leave the club before suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the Community Shield over 12 months ago.

He couldn't work his way back into Guardiola's plans when fit again and was keen to leave the Premier League club.

Now he has the chance to start afresh in his homeland and, although his quality is there for all to see, Lewandowski has promised to help Sane realise his potential. 

'I want to push him hard in every single training to make him realise what he doesn't know he has,' the Polish striker said during a media Zoom call on Tuesday.

'I want him to work harder to show something special because he's an amazing guy and I think with him we can play another tactical system very well.

'That's why I see his massive potential and in my experience you have to push these players to make them play better and better.
