Schalke player Leroy Sane is "genetically talented" according to his former academy coach, Norbert Elgert. "Nobody knows where is the end of his improvement and development," said Elgert, who said he could have been a very good 100m runner like Usain Bolt. Sane has been linked with a move to the English Premier League and Manchester City. His dad, Souleyman Sane, played internationally for Senegal,while his mother, Regina Weber, competed in gymnastics for Germany. Elgert says you could see Sane's talent at a young age.
