Joachim Löw has revealed that he believes Leroy Sane’s return to the Bundesliga will benefit the league, Bayern Munich and perhaps even the player.
The Germany international made the switch back to his home country after a four-year spell with Manchester City.
The winger had mixed fortunes during his time with the Citizens as he would be able to lay claim to a number of pieces of silverware and medals, however his final year under Pep Guardiola was blighted by injury problems as he failed to make a single league appearance in the 2019/20 campaign.

Bayern Munich made it no secret that they were interested in the former Schalke 04 man and had made several attempts to bring him back to the country before eventually sealing a deal for their man.
Indeed, Sane has already started off his Allianz Arena career in fine fashion, as the 24-year-old has managed to score one goal and provide two assists in his six appearances for Hans-Dieter Flick’s team.
Speaking to Bundesliga.com, Löw was asked whether the winger’s return to Germany would be good for both the league and the Bavarian giants and it seems the current Germany National Football Team manager was of a positive opinion.
bundesliga.com: Leroy Sane has returned to Germany. Is this good for Bayern Munich and for the Bundesliga as well?
Löw: “It’s good for the Bundesliga and our fans because signing Leroy Sane is an attractive deal and he can entertain fans through the way he plays. It’s good for us because we can see a bit more of him than if he were still at Manchester City. On the other hand, maybe it did him some good to go from Schalke to Manchester City and to train with a top coach [in Pep Guardiola] there. This would have helped him in his development.”
As mentioned, things appear to have started off well for him and it would be hard to argue against the point that Guardiola may have had a role in helping Sane to develop even further into a top-quality player.
Indeed, it will be interesting to see if he has fully recovered from the nightmare injury he suffered in last season’s FA Community Shield match. Despite a quick, fast start, the season is still in its infancy, so time will only tell.
As Löw also mentioned, it could also help his international career after such a long period as the coaching team will be able to monitor his performances a lot easier than before. He has already featured in three games for Die Mannschaft, though, so perhaps he can be expected to be in the team moving forward anyway.
