​Man City winger Sane closest thing to Giggs - Warnock

Stephen Warnock believes that Leroy Sane is the player who most reminds him of Ryan Giggs.

Sane turned in another impressive performance against Watford in a 2-1 win, when he scored his sixth of the season.

And Warnock had a lot of good things to say about the young German, who was inexplicably omitted from the club's World Cup squad in the summer.

He said on Sky Sports: "Leroy Sane is the closest thing to [former Manchester United winger] Ryan Giggs we've seen in years. His ability to glide past players makes it look effortless.

"I love old-fashioned wingers, he reminds me of when Arsenal had wingers like Marc Overmars.

"With Manchester City dominating possession most of the time, they can hold that width and, one against one, they're devastating."
