Jadon Sancho sends Erik ten Hag dig after assist on Borussia Dortmund debut



| Last Updated:


Manchester United loanee Jadon Sancho has explained that he plans to rediscover his happiness at Borussia Dortmund following his debut assist for the German club.

Sancho, 23, rejoined Dortmund on a six-month loan deal and impressed on his second-debut when he slid Marco Reus in to make it 2-0 against Darmstadt.

The winger signed for United from the Bundesliga side in the summer of 2021 for £73 million but has largely struggled in England and had to leave in the January transfer window after a public spat with manager Erik ten Hag.

In a statement posted online, Sancho accused the Dutchman of ‘lying’ and said he was being made a ‘scapegoat’ after Ten Hag told the media that the England international missed out on the squad to face Arsenal due to his training performance.

The former Manchester City academy player deleted the post but refused to apologise to the manager, who subsequently shut Sancho out of the first-team squad and moved him to the academy building at Carrington.

After his stellar start to life in Germany again, Sancho took a wry swipe at the United manager when suggesting that the loan move would help him re-find his happiness.

“Just to be happy again, to be on the pitch and to help the team,” Sancho said when asked by Sky Germany what his goals at Dortmund are.

“I feel like it was meant to be,” replied the winger after he assisted Reus in the game. “Me coming back and seeing Marco again. He’s a great friend of mine, and I’m happy to set up his goal today.”

Sancho will be aiming to start Dortmund’s upcoming game against Koln next Saturday.
