Watch: Jadon Sancho finishes off Dortmund counter with brilliant finish


Jadon Sancho continued to show Manchester United what they are missing during Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach. 

Sancho was heavily linked with United throughout 2020 but a move failed to materialise due to their refusal to meet Borussia Dortmund’s £108million asking price.

The winger then had a difficult start to the season, failing to find the back of the net in his first 11 Bundesliga appearances.

“Jadon had probably already subconsciously prepared himself a little bit for a change,” Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke told German magazine Kicker in January.

“I think he had at least thought about it so much that he lost his fluency. But I’ve felt he’s been trying very hard for weeks. Things will pick up again very quickly. He is still one of the greatest talents there is.”

The England international has rediscovered his best form in recent weeks and impressed against Mönchengladbach, firing past Tobias Sippel to cap off a brilliant counter-attacking move.

He now has eight goals and seven assists in 13 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund in 2021.
