​Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has challenged forward Leroy Sane to deliver even more after he put on a show in Manchester City’s 7-0 thrashing of Schalke in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday night. 

The young German was at his sensational best as City booked their place in the quarter-finals with a commanding 10-2 aggregate win over Sane's former club. 

Sane, who scored a superb free-kick in the first leg, scored a goal and set up three more at the Etihad on Tuesday, and Guardiola has urged his player to keep at it. 

Asked if Sane was at his best, Guardiola said: "No. After the first goal, yes. Before, no. He was not aggressive enough in the first 20 minutes," as quoted by FourFourTwo

"I like when he runs and goes. If he loses the ball, it doesn’t matter. It is the same with Raheem (Sterling) but they are young. I know it is tough for Leroy, he doesn’t play every game, but after 20 minutes he was then outstanding for the goal and the assists."

"He is a player we know has incredible qualities. It is difficult to find around the world a player with the qualities he has," the Catalan concluded. 

Premier League leaders, City, are next action away to Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday.
