CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: ONE TO WATCH:
Team: Borussia Dortmund
Last year August, Borussia Dortmund made the bargain signing of Jadon Sancho, arriving from Manchester City for £8 million.
The English teenage winger has since excelled in Germany and has played his team’s two opening Champions League games to date. He also received an England call-up thanks to his recent form with the German outfit.
Sancho’s statistics indicate that he is an industrious winger and replicates the work of teammate Marco Reus. Sancho has registered 7 assists in all competitions, along with completing 1.7 key passes per game. He doesn’t take on many dribbles per game, taking on 1.3 per game and only completing half of those he takes on. Showing that he fits into a more well drilled passing team.
He doesn’t take as many shots either and this reflects poorly on his attacking contributions. As Sancho notched in 12 goals in 18 games during his time with the Man City U18’s. With further growth and more game time, I’m sure that Jadon Sancho will establish himself as a world class player.
