Borussia Dortmund’s CEO surprised by Man United's handling of Sancho

Borussia Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has been apalled at the handling of Jadon Sancho by his club and the antional team.

Sancho who starred for Dortmund has struggled in his debut season in the Premier League and wasn't considered as a starter for England in the Euros and according to Watzke, it hurts to see the player given little consideration by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Gareth Southgate.

"I love Jadon (Sancho). When you see him playing you get tears in your eyes. It hurts my soul that he is given so little consideration. I think his problem is that he’s not set in the English national team," said the CEO.

Sancho has failed to find his rhythm and he was condemned to the bench yesterday for the ill-fated 1-0 home loss to Aston Villa; this majorly because injuries to Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw meant that Solskjaer reverted his substitution plans.

Southgate gave the 21-year-old few opportunities in Euro 2020 and brought him on as a substitute for the final penalty shoot-out in which his effort was saved by Gigio Donnarumma.

Since then, Sancho has not played a full 90 minutes in the Premier League or the Champions League.
