'Sad' footage of Jadon Sancho playing for Borussia Dortmund emerges after 'worst player on the pitch' claim

'Sad' footage of Jadon Sancho playing for Borussia Dortmund emerges after 'worst player on the pitch' claim

Sancho has struggled to rediscover his form.

Footage of Jadon Sancho's latest underwhelming performance for Borussia Dortmund has emerged, and fans think it's sad.

Manchester United outcast Sancho returned to his former club Borussia Dortmund in January on loan until the end of the season.

United paid £73 million to sign the winger from the Bundesliga side in 2021, but he was frozen out of Erik ten Hag's squad last September after falling out with the Dutch manager.

Sancho had hoped that a return to Dortmund, where he impressed between 2017 and 2021, would help to reignite his career, but so far he has shown little sign of returning to the level he once played at.

Although he recorded two assists in his first two games back for Dortmund, Sancho has failed to record a goal contribution in five games and is yet to mark his return with a goal of his own.

The 23-year-old lasted 75 minutes of Dortmund's 3-2 defeat to Hoffenheim before he was hooked, after failing to register a shot on goal or provide an accurate cross for his teammates.

Some fans have already begun to turn on him, while others find the decline of the young star rather sad.

Footage of Sancho repeatedly trying and failing to take on and beat Hoffenheim defenders has emerged on social media, with the caption: "It’s just getting sad now, washed is an understatement."

Sancho has been slammed by the German press for his performance.

German outlet Der Westen wrote: "BVB was so happy when Jadon Sancho was brought back during the last winter transfer period. The prodigal son is finally back.

"He really sent the fans into a state of euphoria. A few weeks later there is no sign of it anymore. Against TSG Hoffenheim, the supporters hoped that the 23-year-old would finally score his first goal.

"But they were disappointed once again. The BVB star showed another poor performance against Hoffenheim and was probably the worst player on the pitch."

United will reportedly look to offload Sancho permanently in the summer, but Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl has already admitted it's unlikely the club will be able to afford to buy the attacker.
