Joel Matip believes that his former teammate’s arrival in Schalke at the Bavarian team is bad news for his Bundesliga rivals.
Leroy Sané will give “many joys” to Bayern Munich, according to his former Schalke teammate, Joel Matip.
Bayern completed last month the signing of the young German player by an agreement of 60 million euros. The transfer was announced after the Bavarian giants secured their eighth successive Bundesliga title.
“I know him well. He is a great player. Leroy will unfortunately bring Bayern a lot of joy,” Matip told Die Welt. “Okay, [es lamentable] for the competition, which already has difficulty fighting him. It will not be easier to play against Bayern now. Leroy is a player who can greatly help the team, “he added.
Sané missed almost the entire 2019/2020 season of the campaign due to a cruciate ligament injury he suffered in August. He got to play a game in Pep Guardiola’s team after the resumption of football due to the pandemic.
