Jadon Sancho Reveals What Vincent Kompany Told Him Off For In City Training
Jadon Sancho is one of England's top prospects for the future but he's already making a habit of showing some older players up. The youngster has been hilariously told off by two club captains for doing the same thing in training.
It says a lot for how talented Jadon Sancho is that Borussia Dortmund were willing to spend £10 million on him and hand him the number seven shirt vacated by Ousmane Dembele's departure to Barcelona despite never playing a senior game.
The teenager had become the most expensive 14 year old when he moved from Watford, where he'd been since age seven, to join Manchester City. Despite all the competition at the club he was expected to make it.
However when he decided against signing a new deal in the summer and wasn't taken on City's tour to America he decided it was time to move on an moved to Germany with Dortmund.
The 17 year old, who was part of England's under 17 World Cup win in October but had to leave the squad after the Group Stages, has already made six appearances in the Bundesliga, something that never would have happened in the Premier League by now.
However it's not all be plain sailing. In an interview with JD Sports he revealed that he's been told off by both Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, and Borussia Dortmund captain, Marcel Schmelzer for the same thing, saying:
"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."
Sancho also explained the differences in his game since swapping England for Germany, adding, "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."
Could Sancho make it into England's 2020 squad?
Sancho certainly has a very bright future ahead of him and an England full team call up is a lot closer now he's getting games at Dortmund, he should probably just stop making a fool of his captains.
