Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has hailed David Silva’s vision and feels there are few players who read the game as well as the Spain international.
Sane joined City from Schalke ahead of the 2016-17 campaign and he is impressed with the star-studded squad he has joined at the Etihad Stadium.
“Here, the quality is incredible. All the players at City are famous players who play for their national team. So the technical quality here is high,” Sane told the official City website.
“David Silva has impressed me a lot because if you see how he plays, he always knows what he has to do next. If you see the boxes [passing drills in training], he is never in the box!
“He is one of the players that really impressed me so far. He can read the game very well. He can see where everything is, he knows where to turn so that he has time. He can play one-touch and two-touch football.”
The 20-year-old had a number of options after a stellar 2015-16 campaign with Schalke, but he did not need long to pick City because of the presence of Pep Guardiola.
“It feels very, very good [to be wanted by Guardiola],” he added.
“I was very happy when I found out he wanted me to play for him at Manchester City. It was a very quick decision for me to say I wanted to come here.
“He spoke with me before I signed and said he wanted to make me a better player, to improve areas I am not good in. That is why I chose Manchester City.”
