But Sanehas revealed that he is thoroughly enjoying his time under Thomas Tuchel this season, calling him one of the best coaches in the world.
Sane told FCBayern.com: “Thomas Tuchel is definitely among the best coaches in the world – just as Pep Guardiola is. Both coaches’ successes speak for themselves. I’m still grateful to Pep for everything and I’m happy to be working with another equally passionate, top coach in Thomas Tuchel at the moment.”
Sane has netted nine goals and provided nine assists in 24 matches in all competitions, which has naturally alerted several elite clubs to his form.

The German international also spoke about his displays so far this term, saying that he hopes to give his best until the end of the season, effectively snubbing out any idea of a move in the January transfer window.
“I’ve been pleased with my own performances recently, but I don’t like to give myself such superlatives. In any case I’ll do my best to make sure it continues this way until the end of the season.
“I had a very good preseason under Thomas Tuchel. Everything felt very good, and then one thing led to another. My confidence got bigger and bigger, and then things just generally go better with that confidence. The disappointing 2022 World Cup and the exit in the Champions League quarterfinals gave me extra motivation to make this season more successful, since 2022/23 wasn’t very satisfactory on the whole.”
