Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick claims that Leroy Sane still has improvements to make despite his impressive start to life at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick has called for improvements from Leroy Sane, despite the winger impressing during his opening months at the Allianz Arena.

After missing the majority of last season with a serious knee injury, the former Manchester City man has contributed five goals and two assists from his nine appearances in all competitions.

However, while praising the Germany international, Flick still feels that the 24-year-old has work to do in order to help the team going forward.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Flick said: "He is 100% fit. His efficiency is great, but like other players, he unnecessarily lost the ball a couple of times against Red Bull Salzburg and in some instances, he didn't quite pursue one-on-ones. There are reasons for it, and we talked about that. He will try to do better next time.

"When he comes on the pitch, he creates a certain dynamic in the team, increases it. In the last couple of games, he has always scored after being subbed in. That's what makes him stand out and he has quality."

Sane has been limited to three starts and five substitute outings in the Bundesliga and Champions League since the beginning of the campaign.
