Sky Sports pundit Stephen Warnock has placed a huge compliment on Leroy Sane by comparing the German attacker with Premier League and Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs. The Germany international endured a tough start to the top-flight season with Manchester City but he has sorted himself over the past few months where he has contributed six goals and six assists from just seven league starts.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Warnock has praised the qualities of Sane and believes the German would be the closest that can be compared to Giggs, he said: “Leroy Sane is the closest thing we’ve seen to Ryan Giggs in years. His ability to glide past players makes it look effortless. But what I like about the two wingers is when the ball’s on the opposite side as we saw last night with Sane’s goal and with [Riyad] Mahrez’s goal later on is that they become a second striker when the ball’s on the opposite side of the pitch and it’s something that Pep’s making sure that they do. It’s getting men in the box, it’s getting people in the right areas and that’s why they’re scoring so many goals.”

Bradford City have lost yet again but now to Plymouth Argyle. Despite the sack of Stuart McCall, things have not changed much at the side. Simon Grayson could not inspire the team to success against Plymouth. Loanees Stephen Warnock and Matty Lund could not do anything to stop the losses as well.

Grayson played Warnock in the left back role at Home Park while Lund started from the bench but the damage had been done. Plymouth’s Antoni Sarcevic’s lone goal before half time was enough to separate both sides.
