Jadon Sancho proves his worth to Man United with a fantastic display

Manchester United loanee Jadon Sancho delivered a fantastic performance during Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final last night.

The Bundesliga outfit secured a slender advantage at Signal Iduna Park after a powerful strike from Niclas Fullkrug in the 36th minute.

However, they should have scored more with the chances they created. Sancho played a big part in the victory and he was brilliant with his work rate over 90 minutes.

The 24-year-old had 100 touches against Les Parisiens with 88 passes. He was exceptional in the final third with an impressive 13 take-ons won alongside 14 ground duels.

He created three chances for his teammates including a big one for Julian Brandt, who was denied a goal by a crucial sliding block from Marquinhos in the box.

With the result, Germany have secured a top-two spot in the UEFA co-efficient rankings this term. A fifth-place finish in the Bundesliga guarantees Champions League football.

Dortmund are the beneficiaries as they are fifth in their league. The result also means that the Premier League will only have four places in the European competition next season.

Sancho has indirectly ended United’s prospects of making the competition with a top-five finish, but they could still benefit if they sell him this summer.

Dortmund are interested in re-signing Sancho permanently. The financial boost from qualifying for the Champions League could improve their chances of signing him.

The Englishman could also revive his United career, but it seems unlikely after his public criticism of manager Erik ten Hag. He has no future at the club unless the Dutchman leaves.
