Bayern star Sane 'a little sorry' to thrash former side Schalke by eight goals


Leroy Sane Bayern Munich 2020-21

Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane has admitted he was "a little sorry" to play a part in an 8-0 thrashing of former side Schalke on the opening day of the Bundesliga season.

It got even better for Bayern after the interval as Gnabry completed a hat-trick before Thomas Muller, Sane and 17-year-old Jamal Musiala completed Schalke's misery.

Sane - making his debut following his July move from Manchester City - felt he slotted in seamlessly with his new team-mates and was pleased with their appetitefor goals.

"It felt very good to be on the pitch with the boys," Sanesaid. "It was a very good day. I feel completely at ease and knew that it would work out well with the team. Everyone was hungry. Everyone just wanted to attack and give full throttle."

Sane started his professional career at Schalke before his move to the Premier League in 2016and he admitted to feeling sympathetic towards his former sideafter such a crushing defeat.

"Of course, I was at Schalke for a long time,"he added. "To get such a defeat at the start of the season and it goes so haywire is difficult. I'm of course a little sorry."

Schalke have now failed to win in their last 17 Bundesliga games, with head coach David Wagner left to rue his side's "naive" approach against the domestic and European champions.

"That was bad," Wagner said."We didn't play well; Bayern were outstanding. We have to shake ourselves now, accept this bitter defeat and show the reaction against Werder Bremen that we expect of ourselves.

"It was naive that we wanted to continue going forwardafter the fourth or fifth goal."

Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick said his side's demolition of Schalkeshould serve as a benchmark for the rest of the campaign.

While Flick was pleased his side laid down an ominous marker for the 2020-21 season, he still believes they should have scored more in the first half.

"We have had our first game but we need to take things slowly," he told reporters."We played brilliantly but should have scored two, three, maybe four more goals in the first half.
