"Don't Do That Again" - Jadon Sancho Received Warning From Vincent Kompany In Manchester City Training

Jadon Sancho's £8 million move to Borussia Dortmund was certainly unexpected.

The talented winger reportedly turned down a hefty £30,000 a-week contract at Manchester City to live 'a dream come true' in the Bundesliga and, after joining in the summer of 2017, the teenager has become a first-team regular at the Westfalenstadion.

Sancho has found the net 46 times in 130 appearances since his move as he prepares to face his old side in the Champions League next month.

The England international certainly hit the ground running at Dortmund after being given the number 7 shirt but in his first training sessions with the German club, he was given a stern warning from captain Marcel Schmelzer after a nutmeg.

In fact, that wasn't the only occasion Sancho nutmegged an opponent and felt the consequences.

In a Manchester City training session, Vincent Kompany was fooled by Sancho - a skill move he wasn't best pleased with.

"I nutmegged the captains of Dortmund (Marcel Schmelzer) and City (Vincent Kompany) and they said: 'don't do that again.' They don't like it." he revealed in an interview with JD Sports.

Sancho admits he used to perform plenty of skills in his early days at The Etihad but as time went on, he dropped that part of his game.

"I was always skillful as a youngster but now I don't do skills as much because the game has got quicker and it's more serious.

"Getting my first league call-up was a big opportunity. I just wanted to express myself. I'm more mature now, I know when to release the ball. I'm not greedy but I just want to show what I can do."

He may been told to stop nutmegging players in training after teammates became frustrated with his constant skills and trickery, but you've got to applaud the audacity of it all.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has recently claimed he has 'no regrets' over allowing Sancho to leave the Premier League for Germany.

"I've said many times, it is not a regret," Guardiola said. "He decides. He's doing really well. Congratulations, he's an exceptional player.

"He is a national team player with huge quality, doing really well in Dortmund. We wanted him to stay but he decided to leave, and when people decide to leave all we can do is (let them) leave.

"I wish him all the best, except when he plays against us. No regrets at all. If he's happy, I'm happy."
