The English wonderkid has been making a lot of noise in the German Bundesliga, and many actually love what he’s doing with Dortmund.
Jadon Sancho is a product of the Manchester City and Watford’s youth academies.
But the 18-year-old debuted professionally with Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga in 2017.
Since then, he has been earning his place in the senior squad and has surprised many in the world of football.
“Jadon Sancho is already playing a key role at a very young age. He has unbelievable dribbling ability,” Dortmund coach Lucien Favre told UEFA.com
“It’s been a brave decision by him to play in the Bundesliga, but he is playing in front of big support every week. He’s dealing with that and excelling,” England coach Gareth Southgate added.
“Jadon’s doing really well. If he stays like this and keeps working hard he can become one of the best wingers in the world,” Borussia Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel commented.
“He reminds me of Eden Hazard, and there’s no reason he can’t be as good as him one day.”
Sancho has also been called to the England national team since 2015, as he started with the U16 squad, then move to the U17 and U19.
It was last year when he debuted for the first time for the senior team of the Three Lions.
“His timing, his decision-making; he can adapt in different situations, if you are aggressive with him he’ll pop the ball off, if you stand off him he’ll beat you. He’s so young, the sky really is the limit, Manchester City and England midfielder Fabian Delph shared his thoughts.
“He is a really good talent and someone I’ve thought highly of since the first time I saw him at Manchester City when he was training with us in pre-season,” Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling remembers.
“I know him really well and he’s really modest, but when he’s on the field he wants to express his ability.”
