Ex-Man City midfielder Brown: Sane offers huge lift

Former Manchester City midfielder Michael Brown can see Leroy Sane making a big impact during the Premier League restart.

Sane is fully fit after recovering from knee surgery.

And Brown told Sky Sports: "I think he's been a big miss for Manchester City you see [Raheem] Sterling coming in off the lines from one side, you've seen Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva out in those wide areas but what Leroy Sane gives you is that pace, that power, that direction.

“He wants to push it past the full-back and get in the wide areas getting crosses in so he's certainly been missed. I think he'll be key for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola to give them another option in forward areas."
