Last summer, Jadon Sancho Borussia Dortmund returned his back to change to Manchester United. Despite the exit, the BVB is not a bad blood, as a warm exchange on Twitter showed.
Between 2017 and 2021 Jadon Sancho laced the shoes for the BVB for four years and crowned his time there with the DFB Cup victory in his last season.
When the Englishman celebrated his 22nd birthday on Friday, the Dortmund rained a picture of this triumph again from the archive to convey congratulations.
“Happy Birthday, Jadon Sancho,” wrote the club on Twitter and inserted a picture of the wing player with the DFB Cup. Sancho responded promptly and thanked emotionally: “Thank You, BVB Family” posted the United Star with black and yellow heart as an answer.
After a tough rings, the Youngster had left the revier club in the last July for about 85 million euros in the direction of Manchester.
On the island, the offensive player with his new United family, however, is currently not always easy. Before the season, the Red Devils – also because of the Sancho commitment – were still acted as title candidates, now the English record champion even has to bend around the Europa League.
Sancho is fighting with the form at United
Personally, the Vice European champion from 2021 still struggles with the conversion to English football. Despite 24 inserts in the Premier League, Sancho has so far only enter six goal parties. In his Dortmund times he kept the fans always with much more impressive numbers.
After all, the pillar wing sprayer is currently experiencing its best seasonal phase. The system change under Ralf Rangnick towards an aggressive startup has also horrified his game. Five of his six scorer points collected Sancho under the new manager in the last six games.
At least in the national team, the former BVB professional is currently external. With his volatile season he could not convince England coach Gareth Southgate last.
“The other offensive players in our squad stand after our feeling just before him,” Southgate warned and looked at the WM in November the pressure on Sancho.
