England youngster Jadon Sancho has become a rising star this season as he continues to exceed all expectations at Borussia Dortmund
Sancho was part of the squad that won the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
With five goals and eight assists in 14 appearances this season, Jadon Sancho is undoubtedly a man in form at the start of the Bundesliga campaign.
The Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre had nothing but words of praise for the youngster: “At the age of 18, that’s something special, you don’t see it very often.”
“Of course he has a lot of potential. He’s only 18, and he’s already playing with the England national team,” he added.
The great form Sancho is in also earned him a place in the England senior squad as well where he made his debut in the UEFA Nations League match against Croatia last October.
Sancho’s remarkable displays have also already attracted the attention of several European top clubs including Paris Saint Germain, Manchester United and Manchester City amongst others.
However, according to Sky Sports, Borussia Dortmund are not intended to deprive themselves of the teenage star especially following a number of big names leaving the club in the past years.
The Borussia manager believes a lot in Sancho’s talent and urges the teenager to keep on working hard and enjoying his football: “Of course he can still improve a lot, that’s quite normal and he knows that. But he’s already very good.”

Sancho himself stated how he is enjoying the playing time he is being given and the possibility to keep on improving at Dortmund. At the same time, the club’s sporting director Michael Zorc said that there is the expectation that Sancho will remain at the club for the coming seasons.
Thanks to Sancho’s great performances up till now, Borussia Dortmund are doing very well, currently on top of the Bundesliga with a two-point lead over arch-rivals Bayern Munich. On Saturday, Dortmund will visit Wolfsburg and will try to maintain their top place with another win.
Will we get to see another of Sancho’s great displays on Saturday?
