At Bayern Munich, a lot is currently revolving around Serge Gnabry, who turned down an offer to extend his contract until 2013 despite a salary of 17 to 19 million euros a year. Ex-Bayern star Markus Babbel would rather keep Gnabry and sell Leroy Sané instead.

Sané gone, Gnabry not: In an interview with “Sky Sport”, former Bundesliga coach Markus Babbel (49, Stuttgart, Hertha, Hoffenheim) brought up a personal variant at his former club Bayern Munich: “I would rather Sane in this one Summer sell as Gnabry. It would be all the more important that Bayern extend Serge Gnabry.”

Criticism of Sané: He criticizes the player Sané: “I saw the performance at Bayern and in the national team. That was just not enough for me. If I want to claim to be a world-class player, I have to do better.” Babbel expressly refers to the sporting situation of the 26-year-old winger. “I would never criticize Leroy Sané as a person. He’s a great boy.”

Listlessness: After a strong first half of the season, Sané lost a lot in the second half and his performances were reminiscent of his mediocre first year in Munich. Babbel continues: “In the end it was the listlessness again, the body language on the pitch that wasn’t good. Doesn’t he want to understand? I don’t think the knot will burst with him any more.”
