Jadon Sancho Says He's Playing With His Idol At Borussia Dortmund

Since leaving Manchester City at the age of 17 last year, Jadon Sancho's profile within the footballing world has grown exponentially.

A run of four goals and six assists in less than 500 minutes of football for Borussia Dortmund have seen Sancho become one of the hottest prospects in world football, with rumours of PSG having interest in the England international.

In addition, Sancho seems to have influenced other English talent to take the lunge and move abroad, with Arsenal's Reiss Nelson impressing on loan at Hoffenheim.


Recently, City manager Pep Guardiola has spoken about the youngster, with the Spaniard conceding that Sancho 'Didn't want to stay.'

However, Sancho is loving life in Dortmund as BVB currently sit in first, four points ahead of Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayern Munich.


Furthermore, Dortmund are yet to be beaten under new manager Lucien Favre and have scored 30 goals in 10 games; an average of 3 goals per game.

Following BVB's tight 1-0 victory over Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena, Sancho spoke about Marco Reus in glowing fashion.


"I look up to Marco Reus because he's a very big player - I look up to him like an idol," Sancho told Deutsche Welle after the game.

Sancho continued, explaining: "It's good to have him on the pitch talking to me and giving me advice, because when he tells me things I listen."

Reus, who's enjoyed his best start to a Bundesliga season with five goals and four assists, will be hoping to spur Dortmund on for the rest of the season in hopes of winning their first Bundesliga title since 2012.


Do you think Borussia Dortmund will be able to maintain their run at the top and win the Bundesliga ahead of Bayern Munich? Let us know below.
