Jadon Sancho has only just turned 19-year-old and already the youngster has proved himself in one of Europe’s most demanding leagues, the Bundesliga.
Employed by Borussia Dortmund, he wears the number seven shirt like he was born to do so. Bursting onto the scene in today’s over saturated era of football superstars is difficult, but this boy has talent that few possess and there will come a point when people expect him to deliver.
That time is not now however, most pundits and fans are in agreement that English players in the past have been put under far too much pressure when they were young and that ultimately led to their demise when they should have been at their peak for the Three Lions.
Playing in Germany shields Sancho from such pressure, those who watch him on television on home soil talk of his incredible qualities but most only see highlight reels and enjoy what’s put in front of them. There is no hatred thrown at him from English rival supporters as there are no English rival supporters.
