Sancho explains why he chose Dortmund

The 18-year-old is having a spectacular season with the German Bundesliga team and hopes he can lift a trophy in the summer.

English winger Jadon Sancho started in the Watford youth system in 2007.

He then moved into Manchester City’s young squad in 2015, only to be bought by Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

And the youngster is having a phenomenal time with his new club.

He has scored six goals and given nine assists in the 2018-2019 season so far.

“Everyone’s said I exploded in 2018 and, honestly, that’s how it feels,” he tells FourFourTwo magazine March’s edition.

“It’s been the best year of my life. If you’d told me a year ago that I’d be talking to you now, I’d have thought you were crazy.”

“Why Dortmund? It speaks for itself: youngsters get opportunities,” he says.

“You’ve got to thank Dortmund because it’s unheard of for a team that gets 80,000 fans at every home game to put so much faith in youngsters.”

Nagelsmann hopes Leipzig can keep Werner

Timo Werner is one of Bayern Munich's transfer targets, but the RB Leipzig manager is hopeful he will stay at the club.

“It was crazy how many clubs wanted me – it shows how well you’re doing, but I always felt Dortmund was right for me,” he explained.

“Of course it was a big risk. I wasn’t guaranteed playing time, and I had to prove I was good enough to fit in with their side.”

“A few people weren’t sure when I first told them about Dortmund, but I felt this was the best journey for me,” he continued.

“Just try it, you know? I like trying new things, so it didn’t really faze me. A few asked me, ‘What if it doesn’t work out?’ but I never thought about that.”

“And look at how it’s worked out now,” Sancho concluded.
