Borussia Dortmund youngster Jadon Sancho has talked about leaving his home and family in England in search of more regular first team football.
The 18-year-old who was a part of the England U-17 team that won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2017 left Manchester City in the summer of 2017 after he was dropped from the club’s preseason squad to the United States.
“Not everyone is comfortable moving from home. If you’re ready to play abroad and you believe in yourself, why not? I’d recommend it.” Sancho said, according to FourFourTwo.
“I believe in myself, so moving to Germany didn’t faze me. I can’t just go down the road and see my friends, but it’s what I want to do long-term: to be a professional footballer you have to do what you have to do to make myself and my family happy.”
“Moving from home was the biggest — leaving my mum and my sisters behind. I miss them a lot. It was very tough, especially my mum. But if you really believe in yourself, you have to do what’s best for you.”
Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho also talked about learning from United States international, Christian Pulisic.
“Christian Pulisic is another young guy, and I learn from him. His confidence in taking on players, whether there are four or five guys around him. He tells me to do my thing. ‘That’s why you’re here. You’re Jadon Sancho.’ Those guys make me more grounded.”
