During the winter break, Leroy Sané made a detour to England.
During his visit to Manchester he was shown with Erling Haaland's father.
Manchester – The FC Bayern pros are still on vacation after a long year.
The Munich team will not start their preparations for the second half of the season until January 3rd, which is why most of the players are currently staying abroad.
Some actors, such as Matthijs de Ligt, relaxed on distant beaches, Leroy Sané used the time to visit his old colleagues in England.
The national player ran in front of the lens of Erling Haaland's father.

In the summer of 2016, Sané switched to Manchester City at the age of 20, and the Skyblues stole 50 million euros for the then Schalke talent.
The agile winger made a name for himself on the island and won numerous national titles, including two English championships.
Before moving back to Germany in the summer of 2020, the Essen-born player played 135 competitive games under coach Pep Guardiola and scored a strong 39 goals and 46 goal preparations.
So it's not surprising that Sané still feels a certain connection to his former club.
He stopped by Manchester while on holiday.

Leroy Sané shows a photo from the stadium – Haaland father shares a selfie with the Bayern star
On Thursday, the 26-year-old was at the Etihad Stadium to witness his former employers' 3-2 win over Liverpool in the League Cup.
During the game, Sané posted a photo from the stadium on his Instagram story, but without showing himself.
Sané rarely shares private moments on social media.
The former City player couldn't keep his visit to his old home a secret anyway.
While Erling Haaland gave his team the lead after ten minutes, his father Alf-Inge was in the stadium's VIP area with Sané.
The 50-year-old Norwegian, who played for Citizens between 2000 and 2003, didn't miss the opportunity to take a selfie with Sané.

Under the recording, a few fans were already speculating that the left winger would return to his old place of work, but this is hardly realistic.
On the contrary: Sané, who disappointed with the German team at the World Cup in Qatar, wants to build on his performances from the first half of the season at FC Bayern.
In 19 competitive games he has scored ten goals so far and prepared six more, maybe he learned a trick or two from the callous Erling Haaland on Thursday.
