Sancho opens up on form and failed Man Utd move

Jadon Sancho finally opens up on his form and failed Manchester United move

November 13, 2020 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The English starlet has lift the lid on speculations surrounding his form and this summer's failed transfer.

Jadon Sancho has finally come clean on his dipped form and has refused to attribute it to his failed move to Manchester United. The 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund winger has insisted that the slight change in his performance has nothing to do with the decision to stay in the Bundesliga.

The former Manchester City academy star dominated transfer news this summer with numerous reports suggesting that a return to England was imminent this summer. However, and in the end, a purported switch to Manchester United fell through after the Red Devils decided against meeting the $120M price-tag placed on the player by Borussia Dortmund.

Having finished last season as the best performing under 23 player with 42 goals and assists in all competitions, Sancho has been unable to hit a purple patch this term. Although it is still early days yet, the  Englishman has managed just two goals in nine appearances for Dortmund.

On Thursday, the young attacker was on target as England beat Ireland by four goals to nil. When quizzed on his poor run in recent times, he was quick to deny that speculations of a move to Manchester United this summer had a role to play in it. He said: "No, I don't think so. Every player has a little dip in their career and I feel like I am going through that at the moment.

"It is just how I am bouncing back and I'm just happy to have managers who have faith in me and keep starting me.

"I'm just happy to be starting for England. Every time I play I try to do my best, luckily enough I got the goal and I'm happy to help the team once again."

The City starlet is expected to lineup in the attack when England takes on Belgium and Iceland in two crucial UEFA Nations League matches. The Three Lions desperately need two wins to safeguard their status as table toppers in Group A3 of the competition.
