Mention any of the above 5 times or less like the candy man movie and 'Mase' will appear. Seriously dude, let it go, Sane is amazing but like any other player, he deserves criticism when he isn't performing and praised when he delivers. I doubt anyone wants him to go but I'd back the manager's decision at end of the day.
Eh? We're having a discussion in a thread titles "Sanè".
If you look back to last season I was Sanè's biggest critic. But to potentially lose one of the best players in his position in the world because for one season he "had a bad attitude" is ridiculous. We're not fighting relegation anymore, we're bigger than that. We need and want the best players in the world. If we have them we want to keep them. He doesn't appear to be a bad apple in the dressing room, the players seem to like him. If he was a bad apple I could understand it.
And to try and play down his contribution this season is embarrassing. You've said he deserves criticism when he's not performing - yes every player does. But I've just shown he's scored 10 goals and has 10 assists from 21 starts in the Prem this season. He's scored the winner against our title rivals and got a pen at Anfield. He came on and changed the game against Schalke and the rags. Like someone's mentioned, it's only when these stories of contract talks slowing that people seem to have turned on him.
If he has this bad attitude then where was it last season? If it's just been this one season he's had a "bad attitude" could it be something else? Hasn't he just had a kid? One season with a "bad attitude" and we're not arsed if one of the best players in the world and "future Balon d'Or" goes...
Ask yourself this; do you think he can do better? I do, I just feel he's not pushing hard enough to be one of the best players in the world. I agree he's scored spectacular goals and important ones. I genuinely feel he's more talented than Ronaldo, but, does he have that desire to reach his level, I'm not saying he doesn't work hard, I want him to reach the nex level, that will take some 'sheer' desire to reach it followed by consistency year after year.
