German star Matthaus recently wrote an article in his personal column “This is my opinion” on Sky Sports Germany and talked about some hot topics in the Bundesliga, including Sane’s performance, the rise of Bayer Leverkusen and the comparison of the top scorers.
Writing about Sane, Matthaus praised the Bayern winger’s performance.
“We have known for many years that Sane has potential that no one else in Germany has. He is a man born for modern, fast-paced football because he combines pace, technique and finishing power. His performances every week are outstanding. Excellent, and also realized that football is a team sport, which requires not only attack but also defense. As a coach or manager, this may take a little longer than you think, but Sane has taken a step forward The next step, now he’s at the level he’s really been at for many years.”
“For me, Sane is one of the best players in Europe. He has all the qualities that a top player in football needs to have, is consistent and scores goals for Bayern and for the national team. As a player Fan, friend or football expert, you will be happy to follow a player like this and watch his development.”
“Many people have said that Sane will not be able to do all this, but now his mind is very clear. Sane is not a casual person, he is not very talkative, and you can’t see through him. Maybe sometimes he will be a little bit People talk about his thoughts, but this does not mean that there is something wrong with him. Maybe he thinks it can be done easily and everything is easy. But nothing happens automatically. It may be that Tuchel is already working with He talked about what he can do and what value his ability can bring to the team. I don’t know the specific content, but I am sure that the dialogue between them has allowed Sane to reach the heights he is today.”
Bayer Leverkusen, currently beating Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga, also received praise from Matthaus. He believes that the pharmaceutical company performed perfectly both on and off the field.
“Regarding Leverkusen, I said before the start of the season that they will be Bayern Munich’s strongest opponent. In the 2-2 draw between the two sides in Munich, Leverkusen proved that they are a strong contender for the league championship. Contenders. Head coach Xabi Alonso has a clear idea. He has been leading the team to prepare since the summer preseason, and the team has made good use of this. Florian Wirtz has recovered to The way he was before the injury, they’ve also made reinforcements in a few positions, and players like Jonathan Tower have been really impressive this season after they’ve improved. It’s very interesting to watch this Leverkusen team.”
In addition to Leverkusen, the performance of veteran powerhouse Stuttgart this season is also impressive. Matthaus also compared and analyzed the characteristics of the top scorers Gilassi, Kane and Boniface of the three teams of Stuttgart, Bayern and Leverkusen.
“Stuttgart surprisingly appeared at the top of the standings. Last season, they struggled to avoid relegation, but learned a lot from it. Compared with last season, their coach also led the team to complete the entire pre-season warm-up. In the game, Sebastian Hoeness also has a very clear tactical system. Serou Gilasi already scored key goals last season. Of course, he will not be able to maintain his current goals this season. Efficiency, but he is a decisive player and you can see that not only with his shooting, but also with his movement and technique.”
“Girassi, Bayer Leverkusen’s Victor Boniface and Bayern’s Harry Kane all contributed to the team in their own way. Kane, with his experience, became a key player in the penalty area. A ruthless killer, Gilasi is extremely fast and physical, very similar to Boniface. They are different types of players, but at the moment all three of them are showing the same level of play.”
