Jadon Sancho left ‘humiliated and scapegoated’ by Borussia Dortmund after being hooked after just 36 minutes in Bayern Munich defeat… but Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United remain interested in England star
Jadon Sancho ‘feels humiliated and scapegoated’ by Borussia Dortmund as a quartet of leading European clubs continue to express an interest in the England star.
Though Sancho, 19, has contributed five goals and nine assists for the Bundesliga club so far this season, this form has been overshadowed by two high-profile incidents.
The teenager was dropped for one match and fined £86,000 by Dortmund after returning late from duty with England in October.
Jadon Sancho ‘feels humiliated and scapegoated’ by Borussia Dortmund so far this season
Sancho was humiliated by manager Lucien Favre, who substituted him after just 36 minutes of their 4-0 defeat at Bayern Munich earlier this month
And he was then hooked by manager Lucien Favre after just 36 minutes of Dortmund’s 4-0 defeat to rivals Bayern Munich earlier this month.
Favre then publicly humiliated Sancho by saying he wasn’t injured and his performance wasn’t good enough.
According to The Athletic, these events have left Sancho feeling ‘humiliated, scapegoated and unprotected by his employers.’
His camp believe the youngster is being ‘unfairly used to shoulder much of the blame’ for an inconsistent start to Dortmund’s season.
Sancho scored to spark Dortmund’s fightback from three goals down against Paderborn
They currently sit sixth in the Bundesliga, five points off leaders Borussia Monchengladbach and were forced to fight back from three goals down to draw with lowly Paderborn on Friday night.
Sancho started that comeback with a goal two minutes after half-time and also supplied the assist for a stoppage time equaliser scored by Marco Reus.
However, these good performances are being lost amid negative headlines, with his camp reportedly deeming his early substitution against Bayern and the subsequent comments by his manager as disgraceful.
Dortmund’s handling of interest from other clubs in Sancho has also caused confusion but, according to The Athletic, Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid remain interested.
Manchester City are also continuing to monitor his progress but there has been no contact from Chelsea.
Sancho has not yet made a preference on his next club and doesn’t want to agitate for a move away from Dortmund.
