Jadon Sancho on snubbing Man City for Dortmund, life in Germany and the honour of being called up by EnglandOctober 11, 2018
“At first, I was nervous when I made my debut, but now I’m getting used to it.
“I was kind of surprised when they offered the No 7 shirt to me, but I realised: why not? I believe in myself, so why not?”
Sancho is now feeling more at home in western Germany, though his mastery of the language is still in its early stages.
Christian Pulisic, the USA international and a Dortmund team-mate, has been a big influence: “He is another young guy, and I learn from him.
“His confidence in taking on players, whether there are four or five guys around him. He tells me to do my thing. ‘That’s why you’re here, you’re Jadon Sancho’. Those guys make me more grounded.”
