Leroy Sane Manchester City Premier League

« I’m really looking forward to playing at Wembley. It’s my first trip there and everyone has told me it’s a nice stadium with a great atmosphere and we’ll have more than 30,000 fans there making plenty of noise so I can’t wait.

« I think the pitch will suit our style of play and I’ve heard it might be similar to West Ham’s, but no matter where we are playing, we just want to go there and win this game because we want to reach the final and then win the competition. We are all motivated and ready. »

« I’m very proud to be nominated, but it’s going to be a very tough award to win with players like Romelu Lukaku and Dele Alli also nominated, but it’s nice to be in among such great company, » Sane added.

« As for my form and my season so far, I feel it is getting better. At the beginning things were a bit slow as I got used to the pace and I had to improve.

« But now, I’m really enjoying it, things are getting better and better and to be able to play with such great players who are now understanding how I play is a privilege, so things are going well.

« I just needed to settle in, find my feet and get used to the Premier League which is completely different from the Bundesliga. »

He knows my strengths and weaknesses and the result is that we learn to give the best every time.  »
