“You need this…” – Jadon Sancho explains key aspect behind Borussia Dortmund revival



| Last Updated:


Manchester United loanee Jadon Sancho has explained the key aspect behind his revival on loan at Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho, 24, has been on loan at Borussia Dortmund for the past few months, thriving as the German club reached their first Champions League final in over a decade.

With his Manchester United career reportedly over, Sancho is unlikely to rejoin the Red Devils’ squad after this season ends.

Due to his strained relationship with United manager Erik ten Hag, Sancho is widely expected to leave the team during this summer’s transfer window.

The winger’s performance levels were disappointing while at Old Trafford but he has seemed to regain important form with the Bundesliga side.

“It’s a big family, everyone respects each other, everyone helps each other,” explained Sancho during an interview with TNT Sports. “Especially for me, a young player, you need this foundation and especially the fans.

“The fans always support me through good and bad times, and that is what keeps me – and young players – motivated to do their best.”

The Champions League final offers Sancho an opportunity to make history with the club that offered him his first chance in professional football.

“I always knew one day I would play in a game like this,” he added. “For it to be London, and for me to be only 24, to get my first experience in a Champions League final is actually surreal.

“It hasn’t really sunk in yet, but when we travel to London, the occasion will start to hit me.”

The Wembley clash against Real Madrid kicks off at 20:00 BST on Saturday 1 June and will be broadcast live on TNT Sports in the United Kingdom.
