Renato Sanches has been given a new chance at Bayern München under Niko Kovac. Still, he says he would like to be given more minutes on the pitch.

The central midfielder has made five appearances for the Bavarians this season - three of them from the start - and he admits that he would ideally like to play more.

"My relationship with the coach is very good. Of course, I would like to play more. We have many national team players in our team, and the coach has to rotate. But I would like to have more minutes on the pitch," Sanches told Bild.

The 21-year-old also commented on Bayern's recent slump and said that it's understandable that disappointing results lead to criticism when it comes to a big club like Bayern München.

"It's clear that we always feel pressure. We must always do our best and represent the best club in Germany. Therefore, it's normal that there are discussions when we lose some games. That's part of the business and not a problem at all," he said.

Renato Sanches joined Bayern München from Benfica for €35 million in 2016.
