Sane was removed half an hour after entering the field as a substitute in Bayern's 2-1 win against Leverkusen
Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has laid down the law to Leroy Sane, telling the former Manchester City winger that he needs to start delivering for the European champion.
A string of disappointing performances by Sane since he joined in a 50m euro ($61m) move in the summer was capped Saturday when he was removed just half an hour after entering the field as a substitute in Bayern's 2-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen.
Sane, 24, admitted he had been surprised to be yanked off before the final whistle.

Veteran midfielder Thomas Mueller acknowledged that coach Hansi Flick's decision to remove Sane before the end of the game had been "a bitter pill to swallow" for the winger.
Flick is believed to be unimpressed by Sane's work rate and willingness to work for the team and with France forward Kingsley Coman in fine form since he scored the winning goal in the Champions League final, Sane has mainly been used as a substitute.
With the Bundesliga now entering its winter break, Sane will have to wait until January to make an impression.
