Manchester United outcast Jadon Sancho ends goal drought with outrageous finish for Borussia Dortmund


Jadon Sancho marked his first goal since the final day of last season with a stunning finish against Werder Bremen.

The Borussia Dortmund winger, on loan from Manchester United, has netted his first since his return to the Bundesliga club, putting them 2-0 up to add to Donyell Malen’s opener.

The 23-year-old received the ball on the left of the area, before charging forward and dancing past his man and into the box.

Despite teammates arriving at the back post and defenders rushing in on him, Sancho went for goal himself.

Hitting the ball with his right foot, his shot evaded them all and crept in at the goalkeeper’s near post.

Sancho hasn’t scored since Man United’s 2-1 win against Fulham at home on the final day of the Premier League’s 2022/23 season.

He’s also recorded two assists since his return to Germany.

To say Sancho had a tough start to the season with Man United would be an understatement.

He failed to register any goals or assists before going out on loan to Dortmund in January and was also banished from the first team following a public spat with Erik ten Hag.

Ten Hag wished his player well when he departed for him loan move but it remains to be seen what the future holds for Sancho and Man United.

Dortmund went down to 10 men as Marcel Sabitzer was sent off at the end of the first half.

The Bundesliga giants will be hoping to see out a win to take them up to fourth.
