& # 39; Sometimes I like to be critical of him & # 39 ;: Pep Guardiola admits showing Leroy Sane tough love after Manchester City's victory over Manchester United amid suggestions the winger can leave
- Leroy Sane started on the bench on Wednesday but finished second
- He has been regularly dropped in recent months for major competitions by Pep Guardiola
- Guardiola admitted that he sometimes criticizes the offside player after the game
Pep Guardiola admitted that he is very demanding of Leroy Sane, because he wants him to reach his potential after the excellent showing of the winger against Manchester United.
The Manchester City star was again selected for the bench on Wednesday night, after being left out of base for major competitions, with Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling often being selected for him.
But Sane replaced Fernandinho in the second half and scored the second goal when City took three runs off Old Trafford.

There have been suggestions that City is making an effort to tie Sane to a new deal with two years remaining on his current contract – and that his head may have alternated with a possible move.
Bayern Munich is thought to be enthusiastic. But Guardiola suggested his hard love when it comes to Sane just because he wants him to do everything he can.
& # 39; At rest, Fernandinho had few muscle problems in both legs. I thought maybe to use Leroy later, but the way he came in was incredible, & Guardiola said after the game.
& # 39; In that position, he made our game faster. Leroy attacking the byline is a special player.
Sane started the game on the bench, but played a key role because the city won 2-0 on Wednesday
& # 39; I am so demanding of him and sometimes I like to be critical of him.
& # 39; We know his potential and we want to help him to be more consistent in his game.
& # 39; Not only in his actions with the ball, but also without it, and today he was so good and played at a high level. & # 39;
City now simply has to win their last three games of this campaign to keep the Premier League title.
