More to Schalke than Sane, warns Guardiola

Updated: 

Pep Guardiola has warned Bayern Munich cannot afford to focus solely on Leroy Sane when the Bundesliga champions take on Schalke on Saturday.

The 19-year-old has been in sublime form for the Gelsenkirchen side in 2015-16, scoring four goals in 12 league appearances and setting up three more.

Nevertheless, Guardiola has stressed the young winger is not Schalke's only attacking threat.

"Sane is a huge talent and I can only congratulate Germany to have a talent like him. But there is more to Schalke than Sane," said the Bayern head coach.

"They have a lot of interesting and dangerous players up front. There's Max Meyer, Franco Di Santo and Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting. It will be a difficult game for us. They have a lot of quality.

"Schalke's recent results have not been good [six games winless in all competitions], but that only makes them even more dangerous. They have a lot of quality, irrespective of their position in the league table.

"We were unable to beat them last season. Schalke are always a dangerous opponent."

Schalke held leaders Bayern to a 1-1 draw both at home and away in 2014-15.
