How Leroy Sane's wife Candice Brook is helping his partnership with Harry Kane improve

How Leroy Sane's wife Candice Brook is helping his partnership with Harry Kane improve

Kane and Sane have developed a key partnership at Bayern.

Leroy Sane's wife Candice Brook has been credited with helping the Germany international's partnership with Harry Kane at Bayern Munich improve.

Kane has already plundered eight goals in seven games in all competitions for his new club, as well as providing four assists.

The former Tottenham star netted his first hat-trick for Bayern in a 7-0 win over Bochum at the weekend - although the hat-trick doesn't actually count because of an unusual Bundesliga rule.

Regardless, the England captain has helped his side to top the table after five games, with Kane himself only behind Stuttgart's Serhou Guirassy (10 goals in five games) in the race for the Golden Boot.

Kane has had few issues since arriving at Munich, although one stumbling block has been the language barrier.

He admitted earlier this month that his efforts to learn German haven't yet progressed - although that was mainly due to his assigned teacher being away.

Kane does have an advantage in that several Bayern stars are fluent or highly proficient in speaking English, with Sane and Serge Gnabry among those to have spent lengthy periods in English football.

Germany-born Jamal Musiala, meanwhile, spent most of his childhood in England before joining Bayern aged 17.

And according to German outlet Bild, Sane in particular has quickly been able to form a strong partnership with Kane in Bayern's attack.

That progression has been credited to Sane's fluency in English, through his spell at Manchester City and relationship with Candice Brook, who is an American model.

Bild are describing the strike partnership, which combines Sane's off-the-ball movement with Kane's passing ability, and vice versa, as a 'dream couple'.

Speaking about Kane and Sane's combination in attack, Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel commented: "Harry as a personality, as a fixed point, as a character will make the players around him better through the way he plays, through his presence.

"Harry does what Harry always did. It's a good combination. Not just the two of them, but with both of them it's very obvious at the moment.

"It helps that Leroy speaks English fluently like a second native language and communication is very easy."
