Man City’s Leroy Sané Records the Fastest-Ever Sprint in Premier League History

Man City’s Leroy Sané Records the Fastest-Ever Sprint in Premier League History

Leroy Sané is now the proud owner of a pretty incredible Premier League record after recording the fastest sprint EVER in last weekend’s match against Chelsea.

The Germany international endured a bit of a torrid time at the Etihad in his first full season in English football, but with every passing week this season, he looks more and more like one of Manchester City’s most talented players.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Sané managed to clock up the incredible speed of 35.48 kilometres per hour during the 1-0 win over Antonio Conte’s side – and to put it into context, that’s a whopping 22.05mph.

The statistics are gathered together by the Tracab system of broadcast graphics specialists Chyron Hego the people behind the brilliant Opta accounts on Twitter – who began following the speeds of Premier League footballers back in 2014.

OK, the records have only been kept for a little over three years, but that’s still a pretty impressive top speed, eh?
