Our friendship has been in existence for a long time now. I’ve known Sane since my school years, and that shows how strong our bond is apart from football.
Goretzka was born and bred in Bochum, Germany, while Lerky Sane’s home was just 5 kilometers apart from Groetzka in Wattenscheid. During their early year as kids, they played together for both Schalke and the German national team, .which has brought so much closeness between both players.

” He has matured a lot and has evolved into a big player and no more the 19-year old he once was back in Schalke. I sometimes watch him on TV in the premier league, and he has been so fantastic for Manchester City. He won many titles, just sad that he is injured at the moment, but I believe he will come back stronger.”
