United target Sancho is ‘happy’ at Dortmund

In-demand winger Jadon Sancho said he is happy at Borussia Dortmund and is enjoying helping some of the younger players develop at the Bundesliga club.

Sancho has been linked with a move to a host of top clubs including Manchester United, but Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said the England international is going nowhere.

The 20-year-old left with his team for a pre-season training camp in Switzerland this week and, on Wednesday (Aug 12), played the first 45 minutes of Dortmund’s 6-0 victory over Austrian side Rheindorf Altach alongside 20-year-old Erling Haaland and 17-year-olds Jude Bellingham and Gio Reyna.

“I love playing with this lot. It’s a special bunch. We’ve got some special young players coming up,” said Sancho, who scored 20 goals and set up another 20 in all competitions last season.

“I’m really happy to share the pitch with them and guide them. I joined when I was 17, some of the lads are the same age. I’ve been there and done that. I can guide them in what’s good and what isn’t. I can hopefully motivate them as well.” – REUTERS
