Sancho ‘happy again’ at Dortmund after an assist in his return

Jadon Sancho expresses his desire to “experience happiness again” at Borussia Dortmund, having returned to the club on loan from Manchester United.

Returning to the German side for the remainder of the season, the winger made a strong start by assisting a goal for Marco Reus in Dortmund’s 3-0 victory over Darmstadt in his first game back. Following a challenging period at United, the 23-year-old expresses his delight at being back on the field.

He told Dortmund’s website: “Since I’ve been back here, it’s felt like I’m home. I’m just happy to be on the pitch. Marco is a good friend of mine and I’m just happy that I could set up a goal for him. My objective is to be happy again and to help the team get back into the top three. We’re taking it game by game and I’m sure sure that we’ll do well if we keep fighting in every match.”

Thus, In September, Sancho’s time at Old Trafford took a downturn as the coaching staff excluded him from the squad for the Premier League match against Arsenal.

Coach Erik ten Hag attributed this decision to the Englishman’s training effort. In response, Sancho took to social media, accusing the coach of using him as a “scapegoat.” As a result, he sought an exit and ultimately seized an opportunity with Dortmund’s offer, leading to his removal from the first team.

Sancho aims to capitalize on his promising beginning throughout the remainder of the campaign. Following Saturday’s victory, Dortmund sits in fifth place in the Bundesliga, trailing RB Leipzig by three points, the team currently holding the last Champions League qualification spot.
