"When I woke up, I wasn't sure if it hadn't all been a dream. I didn't see a thing until the ball went in. I could see that (Gerard) Pique hadn't reached it and I threw everything at it. It went in and we all went crazy. We could feel that the Camp Nou was buzzing. We could really feel the fans' support... I simply have no words to explain how it felt. I had always dreamed of scoring a goal like that and being a lad from La Masia made it all the more special. I've worked so long to do something incredible like this for my club. We gave it everything. Our attitude was spectacular. It's a night that will always be remembered, like the one at Stamford Bridge when (Andres) Iniesta scored. We made the impossible possible. This comeback has given us new life to deal with what we have left of the season."

"When I see Sane play, I remember Gareth Bale when he went from Southampton to Tottenham. Early in the season, you thought ‘Sane, oh he’s young, a little bit weak, he's not used to English football’ – Gareth Bale was like that but what I’m seeing now is something similar to Gareth Bale. The way he has devastating pace, the way he goes past people with that power and pace. Simplicity at times, he’s not someone who’ll do two, three step-overs, it’s running behind, pace, and devastating finish. He could be a sensational player." *Phil Neville compares Manchester City winger Leroy Sane with Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale on BBC’s Match of the Day 2*

At Manchester United, you'd see him running from deep. He's more of a striker. He's very effective in the box, scoring goals, making assists.
