Newcastle United talent Rolando Aarons praises Schalke star on Twitter

Leroy Sane was excellent against Real Madrid last night.

Schalke 04 were admirable yesterday in their attempt to defeat Real Madrid. They pushed the Spanish giants all the way throughout proceedings and won the game 4-3. Unfortunately they lost the tie 5-4 on aggregate, one goal away from knocking Real out on away goals.

One man who really caught the eye was 19-year-old attacker Leroy Sane. The German under-19 international scored and forced a late save from Iker Casillas in a stunning turn from Sane.

His performance certainly impressed neutrals, including one Newcastle United midfielder. Rolando Aarons was the player in question, as he posted this Tweet last night:

Indeed Schalke have an excellent talent on their hands in Sane, while Newcastle have a similarly talented player on their hands in the form of Aarons.

The fellow 19-year-old started this season with a bang, after scoring against Sane's Schalke in pre-season, he went on to score twice for the club early in the season.

Unfortunately his season has been blighted by injury. He has suffered numerous hamstring problems and has not played for the club since the 1st November last year.

Newcastle fans will be hoping he is back soon and having a similar affect to that of Sane at Schalke.
