Manchester City cruised to a 6-1 win (https://www.shortlistdubai.com/sport-fitness/article/27096-bale-scores-o...) over Kitchee in Hong Kong with Leroy Sane scoring twice.
The German winger has been heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich all summer, but he was fully focused on his current employers during the game and produced an impressive display in the Hong Kong heat.
David Silva, wearing the captain’s armband, gave City the lead with a clever chip after being released by Raheem Sterling, who turned provider again for Sane to make it 2-0.
Having assisted the first two goals, Sterling then added his own name to the scoresheet, curling home brilliantly from a Silva flick.
The one-way traffic continued into the second half as Kitchee struggled to live with the quality of their illustrious opponents, with three further goals (https://www.shortlistdubai.com/sport-fitness/article/24172-a-guide-to-th...) scored by Pep Guardiola’s side.
Sane scored his second from close range after a Kevin De Bruyne strike was parried into his path, and it was down to two youngsters - Nabil Touaizi and Iker Pozo – to complete the scoring for the Premier League side.
