After four years at Borussia Dortmund, Jadon Sancho joined Manschester United in the summer of 2021. The former BVB professional now spoke about a change and revealed that he could have ended up at FC Chelsea and FC Liverpool.
“At the national team, I already met Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw. They always said: Come to United,” Sancho said at “Sky” about his motivations for the change to the Red Devils.
But other national team colleagues from other clubs from the Premier League lured the wing sprocker: “There were also the guys of Chelsea or Liverpool, all trying to convince me of their club.”
Ultimately, Sancho decided to change to Manchester United. There, the Youngster has not yet been constant to his achievements he had regularly shown in the BVB jersey.
“I’m very self-critical. It was certainly not my best season, but I’ve learned a lot,” Sancho reflected and added: “A new league, new teammates. I would say that I’m just starting right now Feel more comfortable and am happy. “
The Balance Sheet of the Englishman at Manchester United falls rather meager – especially in view of the 85 million euros. In 31 competitive games, he achieved five goals and prepared two more hits.
This role played Pulisic at Sancho’s change to BVB
In the interview, Sancho also voted over a change in 2017 from the Youth Department of Manchester City to Borussia Dortmund. “The club has tried very around me,” the 21-year-old recalled.
An important role in his decision was the then 19-year-old Christian Pulisic, who was “almost a role model” for Sancho. “I saw him and thought, that could be me too.”
For the BVB, Sancho completed 137 mandatory games where there are 50 goals and 64 templates. “Luckily, the BVB has given me this opportunity and I think I’ve brought this achievement then,” the attacker accounted for his time at the black and yellow.
