Footballers get a bit of stick nowadays for being arrogant and perhaps a little oblivious to the real world.

However, Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has taken that to a whole new level, having his back inked with a likeness of himself.

While the Germany international may just have been taking the phrase 'the body is a temple' a little too literally, his City teammate Raheem Sterling just had to point out Sane's overindulgence in himself.

Responding to Sane's Instagram story, Sterling wrote: "What a sh*t tatoo "my name is @LeroySane19 and I love myself"."

While Sane has had to be patient so far this season, he impressed during a substitute cameo against Liverpool on Saturday, scoring twice as City swept the 10 men of Liverpool aside with a ruthless attacking display.

Sterling has also performed well, scoring twice in three Premier League appearances, but sat out the game against his former side after being sent off at Bournemouth.
