The Germany international, Leroy Sane, has been in excellent form so far this season but defender Elseid Hysaj is sure that he will be able to keep him quiet in the upcoming fixture between Napoli and Manchester City.
Manchester City are about to face Napoli away from home in the Champions League group stage match and Pep Guardiola’s side are still waiting for dropping their first points in this competition. And one of the reasons for that is Leroy Sane, the young winger – but opponent’s defender Hysaj is sure that he will be able to defend him.
The Albanian full-back knows that Sane is a great player but he can be stopped as he claimed, according to Goal: “He is a strong player, technically and physically strong and we will talk about him, but I have already studied how to stop him.”
Napoli is doing great in the domestic competition and they were able to come from behind against Genoa last time – and they are at the top of the table with nine wins from ten matches. Hysaj is sure that his side can win the Scudetto: “Nobody knows what will happen with the Scudetto, but we deserve it, both the team and the city.”
He also compared the last match against Genoa to a couple of similar matches from the previous season as his side weren’t able to turn it around before: “We are very happy for the Wednesday’s win because Genoa are a good team and it is always a hard field. We’ve been good at reacting and playing our own game. We’ve been very mentally strong when we’re losing games, even in Manchester we reacted and eventually we could even tie.”
It’s been a successful season so far for Sarri’s players, can they keep it up and cause problems for Manchester City?
