Jadon Sancho 'breaks silence' on Man Utd exit with Michael Jordan reference after joining Borussia Dortmund

Jadon Sancho 'breaks silence' on Man Utd exit with Michael Jordan reference after joining Borussia Dortmund

Jadon Sancho has completed his transfer to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United.

Jadon Sancho has broken his silence after completing his stunning return to Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho has finally left Manchester United as he's re-signed for Dortmund, having penned a loan deal until the end of the season, with no option to buy.

Dortmund released a statement after acquiring his services as Sancho referenced NBA legend Michael Jordan.

"I'm back," he said, in a statement shared by the club on social media.

Sancho's two-word statement is what Jordan said when he announced his return to basketball.

Speaking to the club's website, he added: "When I walked into the dressing room today, it felt like a homecoming. I know the club inside out.

"I can't wait to see my teammates again, to get out on the pitch, play with a smile on my face, set up goals, score goals and help BVB qualify for the Champions League."

Sancho moves back to Dortmund, having enjoyed a stellar spell prior to his transfer to Man United in the summer of 2021.

He scored an impressive 50 goals in 137 appearances for the Bundesliga side before signing for the Red Devils.

The 23-year-old, who hasn't played since last August, will wear the No.10 shirt at Dortmund.

The German outfit resume their league campaign on Saturday when they travel to Darmstadt.

But having not played many minutes this season, Sancho won't be ready for his side's league fixture.

Dortmund's sporting director Sebastian Kehl added: "Jadon Sancho is an absolute difference player and I’m looking forward to seeing him back in black and yellow soon. He knows this city, Signal Iduna Park, our fans and our club.

"Even though he hasn't played any competitive games in the past few months, we are sure that he will quickly settle back in with us, get into top form and use his qualities to help us achieve our goals for the season."
