Manchester City drew 1-1 with Bayern Munich in the second leg of the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League quarterfinals held at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany at the dawn of the 20th (Korean time). In the second leg, the game was not decided, but Man City took a 4-1 lead on the aggregate of the first and second games and took a ticket to the semifinals.
Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 20th, “Coach Guardiola met Sane after the game and comforted him. Coach Guardiola reached out to Sane and talked with Sane, who was grieving for a while.” 안전놀이터
Sane joined Bayern Munich from Manchester City in 2020. It’s been nearly three years since he left Manchester City, but he couldn’t turn a blind eye to his grieving ‘old pupil’. In the captured photo, Sane wiped away tears with his clenched fist, while Guardiola held Sane’s neck with one hand and examined his face closely.
‘Daily Mail’ explained the situation, saying, “It is a scene that can confirm that the two are still maintaining a good relationship.” Sane got into an argument with Mane in the locker room after losing away to Manchester City on the 11th and was hit in the face by Mane, which ruptured his lip and caused bleeding.
