Sane delighted by comparison to 'legend' Giggs

Pep Guardiola has suggested there are similarities between Ryan Giggs and Leroy Sane, delighting the Manchester City winger.
 
Leroy Sane is thrilled to be compared to Manchester United "legend" Ryan Giggs but accepts he has work to do before he can be considered in such esteemed company.
 
Giggs, now in charge of Wales, is a Premier League icon having won 13 titles, as well as two Champions League crowns during a career-long stay at Old Trafford.
 
Manchester City winger Sane is in fine form with eight goals in this season's Premier League putting him on track to eclipse the 10 he contributed for Pep Guardiola's side in 2018-19.
 
Despite the 23-year-old's searing pace and bag of tricks, Guardiola has indicated it is too early for Sane to be compared to Giggs and the Germany international agrees with his manager's assessment.
 
"Comparing him to me - I can't do it at all!" Sane said of Giggs. "If you see the kind of player he was, he's a legend for Manchester United and the Premier League. 
 
"How he played was special and how many titles he won, I'm not nearly there! Obviously I'm pleased that people do it because it means I'm doing some things well and I'm really happy about it."
