Leroy Sane spotted crying post-match in private chat with old boss Pep Guardiola

Leroy Sane broke down in tears after Bayern Munich's defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League.

City, already 3-0 ahead on aggregate from the first leg at the Etihad Stadium last week, never looked like relinquishing their lead on a comfortable night at the Allianz Arena. Pep Guardiola's side increased their advantage to 4-0 overall when Erling Haaland made it 1-0 on the night in the 57th minute, before Joshua Kimmich levelled things from the spot late on.

With the reigning Premier League champions through to their third consecutive Champions League semi-final, former Cityzens winger Sane shared an emotional moment with Guardiola after the match.

It has been a difficult time for Sane at Bayern after he was reportedly punched by team-mate Sadio Mane after their first leg reverse to City at the Etihad last week. The pair shared an awkward embrace on Wednesday night as the former Liverpool man replaced his ex-City counterpart in the second half.

Sane reflected on the tie as a whole to BT Sport after the game. He said: "It was a good, strong game from us. Man City got a lot of pressure but it is tough because we lose the first game away 3-0, which shouldn't have happened, today we could have done a lot.

"It is tough for me because I had a good chance. We had them under control, won lots of ball in midfield, if I had scored I would like to have known where this game went.

"I know the team quite well, I know how strong they are at home, but if you concede three away in the first leg it's tough. It's annoying how it went, especially how we played today – I am proud about that, we have to keep up the spirit and focus on the league now."

Speaking about his former employers, he said: "Everyone knows I like them and like how they play, so congrats to them."
