Sane responds to Kroos criticism after missing out on World Cup place

Leroy Sane is determined to show his critics what he’s made of as he bids to bounce back from his World Cup heartache.

The Manchester City winger was left out of Germany’s 2018 World Cup squad for the summer tournament in Russia.

His omission from the squad prompted criticism of Sane from teammate Toni Kroos , who questioned the 22-year-olds attitude.

But now Sane has responded to the comments in an interview with FourFourTwo, and stated a desire to prove his worth to the national team.

Sane said: "If I play bad, then it’s not like I don’t care. I always want us to win our games.

"I don’t have any problem with criticism. It’s an incentive to refine myself.

"Sure, I was disappointed when I heard that I wasn’t in the World Cup squad, but it motivated me even more and as I already said – I want to show everyone what I’ve got."

Sane’s comments come in defence of claims made my teammate Kroos prior to the tournament.

Kroos had said of Sane: "Sometimes you have the feeling with Leroy’s body language that it is all the same whether we win or lose.

"He has to improve his body language.

"He’s a player who has everything you need to be a world-class player but sometimes you have to tell him he has to perform better."

It seems Sane welcomed the comments from Kroos however, as he stated his desire to continue to learn and improve.

It seemed Sane started this season with a similar issue at club side Manchester City, as manager Pep Guardiola left him out of the match with Newcastle before restoring him to the bench for the recent clash with Liverpool.

Despite this, Sane still won his place back in the latest Germany squad for the UEFA Nations League matches with Netherlands on Saturday and France on Tuesday.
