Jadon Sancho scores banger during BVB vs PSV UCL tie but leaves mid-game with injury

Manchester United’s most hyped signing, Jadon Sancho, failed to live up to the expectations in England. He progressed through Manchester City’s youth set-up before moving to the Bundesliga to join Borussia Dortmund. He made a name for himself and became one of the most sought-after names in Europe.

Sancho’s spell at United was disrupted after falling out of favor with Erik ten Hag. He was axed from the club’s first team after refusing to apologize to the manager following their feud. Fortunately, a loan move back to Germany has proven to be a blessing in disguise for him.
