Borussia Dortmund are desperate for Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho to succeed during his loan spell at the club.

Three years after he signed for Manchester United in 2021, most fans at Old Trafford can’t see what all the fuss was about with Jadon Sancho.

If there is one club that do know what he is capable of, it’s Borussia Dortmund, where Sancho made his name as a teenager.

Sancho re-signed for Dortmund in the January transfer window on loan and has had a tough spell so far.

Sebastien Kehl praises Jadon Sancho after goal

Jadon Sancho managed to score his first goal of his loan spell at the weekend, a winner in a 2-1 victory away to Werder Bremen.

Former United prospect Isak Hansen-Aaroen was an unused substitute for Bremen.

This goal was a much-needed boost for Sancho, and Dortmund sporting director Sebastien Kehl talked the winger up after the win.


Kehl told BILD: “Everyone was happy for Jadon because everyone sees that he works and is totally willing to help this team. He had one or two assists before. This goal will give him a boost. We need him. Again on Wednesday and the next few weeks.”

Dortmund face PSV in the Champions League last 16 second leg in midweek, with the tie level at 1-1.

Dortmund boss says Sancho ‘dissatisfied’

Dortmund manager Edin Terzic spoke out after the game, telling Welt that Sancho wanted more from his own display.

Terzic said Sancho was ‘very dissatisfied’ after the game, before elaborating on their post-match conversation.

The coach explained: “He said he lost too many balls. But that’s what I like about him, that he doesn’t just limit his performance to the goal.”

Sancho had a pass completion rate of 79 per cent and failed to create any chances. His goal came from his only shot at goal.

Terzic said he was not surprised Sancho has had a slow start at the club, adding that his form issues were “completely logical when you consider what his last 12 months looked like”, referring to his troubles at Manchester United.

United need Sancho to succeed in Germany, to give the club a better chance of selling him on a permanent basis in the summer transfer window.
