Christian Pulisic’s former Borussia Dortmund teammate Jadon Sancho is set to have his second break out season in a row, if that’s even possible, which it definitely is because that’s how good this adult it. I say adult because Jadon Sancho is over the hill at 18 years, nipping at Kylian Mbappes’s heels like an Irish Wolfhound for the title of Best Under 20 Footballer (baller) in der Welt.
Jadon Sancho. Do not forget that name. Right now he’s toiling in relative obscurity because, let’s face it, the Bundesliga is a bit like the minor leagues compared to the Premier League.
He grew up literally playing in alleys in London, and it shows in his almost obscene comfortableness on the ball.
But Sancho, of course, will be back (he was once part of Man City), and when he does make it back to the Premier League, stars will explode. This adult’s talent is unreal. He grew up literally playing in alleys in London, and it shows in his almost obscene comfortableness on the ball. The way he toys with defenders, as if they were toys. The way he toys with the ball, as if it were a toy. The way he scored goals and makes assists. His first touch is ridiculous but guys, can we talk about something? His second and third touches are ridiculous too.
I would be incredulous if this is not Jadon’s last season in the Bundesliga, but I would be surprised if he doesn’t finish the season because there’s a very good chance Dortmund will win the title this year. But then next year it’s probably off to England, where who knows where he’ll end up. Maybe he’ll end up playing in a little stadium in West London where the players wear blue shirts.
Wouldn’t that be nice.
