Sane yet to reach his peak as Bayern run riot

Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane says he has yet to reach his best despite an impressive performance as Bayern started the new Bundesliga season with an 8-0 win over Schalke at the Allianz Arena on Friday evening.

Hansi Flick's men were rampant on home soil, with former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry scoring a hat-trick.

He and Sane looked to have formed a formidable partnership already as part of a three-man attack alongside star striker Robert Lewandowski, with all three on the scoresheet against Schalke.

Leon Goretzka, Thomas Muller and substitute Jamal Musiala scored their other goals as Flick's side took their winning record to 22 games in a row.

Sane was making his debut for the Bavarians after signing from Manchester City this summer, and he says there is more to come from him, in what is a stark warning to the rest of the Bundesliga.

Sane told the club's official website: "I'm very happy. The team was already top last year with very good players and very good cohesiveness. The boys are still hungry, even though they won the treble. To start off like that at home against Schalke is great.

"It felt very good to finally play football together with the boys. It was a very good day, a good game, many goals. We didn't ease off at all. Of course, I want to go full throttle, but I'm not quite at 100 per cent yet. I always want to give my best, help the team play well and win."

Bayern won the treble last year, and they will fancy their chances of lifting the Champions League for a second succesive campaign.

The German giants are 12122.00 to defend their European title, while Manchester City are 1.44.
