Manchester United outcast Jadon Sancho wants to return to Borussia Dortmund and revive his career
Manchester United star Jadon Sancho prefers to return to Borussia Dortmund to revive his stalled career. Sancho wants to rejoin his former club where he earned the reputation that attracted top clubs when United signed him.
Sancho had a public fallout with United manager Erik ten Hag after the Dutchman criticized his training performance. The United boss’ criticism came after the 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in early September.
Ten Hag dropped Sancho from the matchday squad, making the criticizing comments as a response to the reporter’s query post-match. Sancho responded to the criticism through a post on platform X, blaming the manager for using him as a scapegoat.
United banned the 23-year-old from the first-team facility as a result of his actions and lack of apology thereafter. The public spat has left the fanbase divided with many football pundits picking sides between the manager and the player.
Many experts criticized the stubbornness of the 23-year-old, bringing the problem of too much player power in modern days. On the other hand, Ten Hag received criticism over his man-management skills. The Dutchman had a fall out with Cristiano Ronaldo last season that resulted in the termination of the Portuguese forward.
The 23-year-old failed to recreate the same level of consistent performance and output at Old Trafford. Sancho made 82 appearances for the Red Devils, contributing with 12 goals and six assists.
Italian publication Calciomercato reported that Sancho prefers going back to his old club Dortmund despite interest from Juventus. The report further mentions the stance of United as they look to permanently sell their first-team outcast.

United are not keen on a loan deal or pay the high wages that the 23-year-old commands. The clubs interested in Sancho face a significant stumbling block due to this stance.
A return to Dortmund can be the thing that works for both Sancho and United. The 23-year-old needs regular football at a place where his mental and physical health can thrive.
