Neymar says Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is a “special player” and he “really likes” watching him play.

Sancho has been heavily lauded all over Europe this season and has now gotten a praise from a certain fellow footballer.

Neymar and Sancho lock heads when PSG and Borussia Dortmund play in the Champions League next week.

The PSG man has revealed his admiration for the youngster and says he is a joy to watch on the ball.

Sancho has been in blistering form this season, with 12 league goals and 13 assists in 19 games for Dortmund.

Neymar has now given his verdict ahead of his side’s Champions League tie.

“We are two teams who like to attack, two teams who qualify thanks to the players,” Neymar said via Sky Sports.

“Borussia have players that can make the difference. Jadon is a player that I really like to watch play and he is a great player with plenty of quality.

“Borussia Dortmund is a team with plenty of quality players. They have a special player, who is new but who is very good whose name is Sancho.”
