“We want that!” Jadon Sancho praised by two Premier League icons following Champions League win



| Last Updated:


Premier League legends Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry have praised Jadon Sancho for returning to form at Borussia Dortmund.

As Dortmund beat PSG 1-0 both home and away in the Champions League semi-final, Sancho impressed in both legs as one of die Schwarzgelben’s best players.

Returning to Germany on loan after being expelled from the Manchester United team by Erik ten Hag, Sancho is believed to be keen on leaving United permanently. This is unlikely to prove a challenge, as Sancho continues to put himself in the shop window for several potential suitors.

Four months into his return to Germany, Sancho has scored on three occasions and picked up one assist, cementing himself as a starter across all competitions.

Discussing Sancho’s time in Dortmund and his inability to reach his best at United, Carragher suggested that he may not be a good fit for the Red Devils.

“He was brilliant, wasn’t he? Fantastic,” Carragher told CBS Sports. “He’s not Dortmund’s player, he’s Manchester United’s player, so United fans will be watching this game thinking, ‘We want that player, where’s that player? We haven’t seen that player for two years.’

“But that is the player that they bought. Moving clubs, sometimes it’s just the kit, the feeling, the stadium, the confidence that you’ve got… it doesn’t feel the right fit at Manchester United.

“And that’s not just for him, that’s for a lot of players. At certain clubs, you just feel more yourself.”

Carragher’s co-host, former Arsenal striker and Premier League legend Thierry Henry, was quick to agree with the Englishman, noting the following:

“It’s not easy sometimes. The shirt can be heavy, the expectation, the price tag, language, getting used to the town, getting used to something different. You know people at times underestimate all those points.”
