    Jadon Sancho’s dip in form is labelled a ‘CRISIS’ in Germany

    Jadon Sancho’s form is labelled a ‘CRISIS’ in Germany with the press fearing he’s switched from ‘high-flyer to problem child’ after Borussia Dortmund rebuffed Manchester United’s interest

    • Jadon Sancho’s recent dip in form has been criticised by the German media
    • Sancho has not been his usual best in the early weeks of the German campaign
    • He has scored just two goals and contributed four assists in nine appearances
    • BILD claim Sancho is in ‘farewell form’ amid ongoing links to Manchester United
    • One outlet wrote the England ace has gone from ‘high-flyer to problem child’ 

    Jadon Sancho‘s underwhelming form for Borussia Dortmund so far this season has been labelled as a ‘crisis’ by the German press.

    The England international has not been at his usual best in recent weeks, scoring two goals and contributing four assists in nine appearances across all competitions so far this campaign.

    Sancho was at the centre of a fierce transfer tussle between Dortmund and Manchester United in the summer with the Premier League giants ultimately unable to bring him back to the Premier League.

    In the previous two campaigns in Germany, Sancho has racked up 33 goals and 39 assists in 87 appearances. That form has seen him become one of the most in-demand players in world football with Dortmund rating him at £108million. 

    But his form at the start of this season has given cause for concern and, in the wake of another ineffectual performance in Dortmund’s defeat by title rivals Bayern Munich, the German press have aired their views.

    BILD posted a piece on Monday night that declared Sancho’s dip in form a ‘crisis’ and claimed Sancho is suffering an ‘unexpected performance gap’.

    Sancho has not scored in the Bundesliga for 11 league games, going back to his hat-trick in the 6-1 win over Paderborn on May 31. 

    However, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc appears to be relaxed about Sancho’s form however, telling BILD: ‘Jadon has always shown consistent performance.

    ‘If this has not been at the top level we are used to for three months, we have to admit that to a 20-year-old. I’m not worried about that.’

    Data collected by BILD also shows that Sancho’s average speed of 32.7 km/h this season is 1.3km/h slower than last season, hinting he is missing some of his usual urgency. 

    A comment piece by BILD reporter Michael Makus claims Sancho has been playing as though he is in ‘farewell form’ amid the increasing links to a transfer away from Dortmund.

    In his six Bundesliga matches this season, BILD have given Sancho a harsh ranking of 3.7 out of 10. 

    They also claim that Sancho’s dip in form could relate to the amount of games he has been playing and manager Lucien Favre will have to use ‘clever load control’ to get his star man back to top form. 

    Makus also speculates that Sancho may be ‘deliberately letting himself down’ in frustration at Dortmund because they allowed a potential move to United to collapse. 

    United were desperate to bring Sancho to Old Trafford all summer but Dortmund stood firm, holding out for a substantial £108m fee.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward failed to stump up the required cash for Sancho – who has a contract at Dortmund until 2023 – with their highest offer reported to have been £92m, but his form for the German side since has alarmed them.

    Another German outlet, Ruhr 24, wrote that Sancho is ‘currently going through a form of depression’ and that the England international has gone from ‘high-flyer to problem child’. 

    Sancho was also in hot water with England after he flouted coronavirus rules alongside team-mates Ben Chilwell and Tammy Abraham just days before the Three Lions took on Wales last month.

    They all gathered at a 23rd birthday party for Abraham that exceeded the Government’s ‘rule of six’. In June, Sancho was slapped with a fine after breaking coronavirus lockdown protocols to get a hair cut, before he later described the punishment as an ‘absolute joke’.

    Earlier this month, United were given hope over their long-standing interest in Sancho after Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed there is a ‘limit’ on how long the Bundesliga side can resist the Red Devils’ pursuit.

    ‘We could have made a big, valuable transfer in the summer, that’s well known. But we’re glad it didn’t come to this,’ Watzke told BILD.

    ‘Of course, we will also implement transfers again in the future, because Covid is clearly throwing us back. Even the biggest clubs are feeling the effects of the pandemic, be it Bayern, Barcelona or Real Madrid.

    ‘At some point you come to the limit of what you can answer for. You can even see that in Munich right now with David Alaba as an example.’
