Bayern Munich Chairman Rummenigge: “We Replaced Inter’s Ivan Perisic With Leroy Sane, A More Interesting Player”

Bayern Munich chairman and former Inter forward Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has no regrets over his decision to let Ivan Perisic re-join the Nerazzurri last summer.

Perisic spent the 2019-20 campaign on a season-long loan in Bavaria, helping Bayern to an historic treble under Hans-Dieter Flick with a victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League Final.

Bayern had an option to make the Croatian’s move permanent but instead opted to recruit Manchester City winger Leroy Sane in a potential €60 million deal.

In an interview with German publication BILD, as quoted by, Rummenigge said: “We were hurt by Thiago Alcantara’s departure to Liverpool because he is a difficult player to replace, but Perisic and Philippe Coutinho were replaced well.

“As far as Perisic is concerned, we replaced him proudly with Sane, a more interesting player in the long term.”

Perisic has been reintegrated into Antonio Conte’s project at Inter this season and has featured regularly, carving out a space for himself at left wing-back as back-up for Ashley Young.

This season the former Borussia Dortmund player has made 24 appearances, in which he has scored two goals and provided three assists for his teammates.
