According to Borussia Dortmund footballer, Axel Witsel, the qualities Jadon Sancho has are so special, even Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich fear him.

English teenager Jadon Sancho produced a goal and an assist to push Borussia Dortmund to win the German Super Cup against Bayern Munich.

And according to his teammate Axel Witsel, the player has many qualities that will make him a more complete footballer in the future.

“Jadon is a serious talent,” Witsel told the Bundesliga official website.

“Even the Bayern defenders were scared when he was on the ball.”

He explained: “But there’s nothing new there because he just has so much quality.”

“He is quick, technically gifted and he can score goals himself as well as lay them on for his teammates.”

“He really is the complete player,” Witsel said.

“It’s a long season and Bayern are still Bayern, so that means we have to get straight back to work.”

Witsel concluded: “That’s the only way we can achieve our goals, but we’re feeling confident right now.”

“The Supercup was a good sign.”

“When Jadon approaches you in a one-on-one, it’s incredibly difficult [for the defender],” added Dortmund captain Marco Reus.

“He’s a fantastic player, but he’s still learning.”
