Jadon Sancho already granted one wish by Borussia Dortmund that Marcus Rashford blocked at Man Utd

Jadon Sancho already granted one wish by Borussia Dortmund that Marcus Rashford blocked at Man Utd

Sancho has got what he wanted.

Jadon Sancho has already been granted one wish at Borussia Dortmund that was blocked at Manchester United because of Marcus Rashford.

Sancho has rejoined the German club on loan until the end of the season, with no option to buy.

It ends a miserable four-month exile from the United first team for Sancho, who told Dortmund's official website that he wants to 'play football with a smile on my face'.

The 23-year-old was greeted by his team-mates, some of which were at the club when he departed for United in an initial £73 million deal in 2021, in a behind-the-scenes video posted on Dortmund's official social media accounts.

The German giants are relying on Sancho to help turn their season around, after a run of four league matches without a win before the winter break left them six points off the Champions League qualification places for next season.

And Dortmund have shown how important the England winger is to them by assigning him with the number 10 shirt.

In the behind-the-scenes video, Sancho noted how he had been 'eyeing up' a particular spot in the dressing room, having unpacked his new Dortmund suitcase.

He told Dortmund's YouTube channel: "Growing up, 10 was always my favourite number due to Ronaldinho. Obviously me watching his YouTube clips.

"So when Dortmund said 10 is available, I didn't second guess. I just said, 'Yes please, if you could reserve it for me, that would be perfect'."

Sancho wasn't afforded the same luxury upon his arrival at United, with the number 10 shirt already occupied by Marcus Rashford - meaning he couldn't have it.

To make matters worse, he was also denied the number seven shirt that had been worn by a host of United greats such as Bryan Robson, George Best and David Beckham.

The number was being worn by Edinson Cavani at the time, although the Uruguayan decided to give up his shirt number so that Cristiano Ronaldo could have it when he returned to Old Trafford.

Sancho will hope the number 10 shirt brings him great success at Dortmund as he looks to recapture the form that convinced United to splash out that £73 million to sign him.
