Man United fans furious as video of Jadon Sancho’s Dortmund highlights goes viral

Sancho reached the Champions League semi finals with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday

Manchester United fans have been left feeling frustrated after watching Jadon Sancho’s recent performance for Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho was loaned out to the Bundesliga side by United in January following a public falling out with manager Erik ten Hag that saw him removed from the first team picture entirely.

After a sluggish start to his second spell at the club, the winger has improved with time and was pivotal over the course of both legs as Dortmund beat Atletico Madrid to reach the Champions League semi finals.

Sancho looks back to him old self

In the second leg win against Atletico, Sancho looked like the sort of player that convinced United to spend over £70m on him.

Regularly taking on his opponents and creating chances, the 23-year-old looked like he was back to his best.

While it is brilliant to see it’s left United fans wondering one thing… ‘why wasn’t he like that for us?’

“This angers me so much because why couldn’t he dribble past ONE Premier League fullback but can do this vs Atletico??” said one fan.

A second wrote: “Seeing this guy play like this angers me so much not coz I dislike him I do not, but coz I never got to see this from him at United! Why pay so much and you can’t ever do this even in a single game but do it always in a Dortmund shirt.

“This dude never even tried to take on even a single defender while playing for United,” added a third.

“See this is just infuriating cos with a United shirt on he couldn’t have ran past his granny but back in yellow all of a sudden he’s found two extra gears,” commented another.

Sancho could deliver Man United huge blow

It’s looking pretty unlikely that United will finish in the top four this season. They’re currently seventh and on a four-game winless run but there were some hopes that the Premier League spot would be awarded a fifth Champions League spot as part of UEFA’s rules ahead of the new-look competition next season.

Since the Champions League will expand from 32 to 36 teams, two additional spots are up for grabs and UEFA will award those places to the countries that have the best co-efficient across the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League this season. 

Italy and Germany are the two nations in the best position to get this prize, with England just behind in third place. This means, as it would stand, the Premier League would miss out on a Champions League place.
