“Sancho breaks the rules?”

Borussia Dortmund has made headlines for making remarks that seemed to target Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag. Ten Hag reacted furiously as if he didn’t want to get entangled with Sancho.

Sancho joined Dortmund from Manchester United during this winter’s transfer window. He has returned to his hometown after three years. Sancho, who left Manchester United for a fee of 85 million euros (W123 billion) ahead of the 2021-22 season, returned to Germany as his growth slowed.

Sancho has been a problem for Manchester United. As seen in his huge investment, he has long hoped to play as an ace. However, Sancho scored only three goals and three assists in 29 games in his first year of the transfer. Since he was a talent who scored up to 20 goals in a season with Dortmund, some people thought that he would improve if he had time to adapt.

Sancho did not survive until the end. Last season, he only had six goals and three assists in 26 games. Midway through the season, he could not be incorporated into the team to the extent that coach Ten Hag had to exclude him from his power and train him separately. In the end, problems arose this season. Sancho became dissatisfied when coach Ten Hag continued to exclude him from the roster. Coach Ten Hag pointed out his stagnant skills and insincere training attitude.

One of them is a violation of the rules. Sancho is known to be often late at Manchester United. He overslept while playing, so he came to training late. In fact, Sancho’s tardiness problem has been discussed since his days at Dortmund, but his poor performance has made it even more problematic at Manchester United.

Sancho was sharp because it was an emotional decision. The feud did not go away, and Sancho headed to his hometown through the January transfer window. Dortmund assigned No. 10 to symbolize the ace. Even though it was a short loan for six months without a complete transfer clause, he was given No. 10 as if compensating for his past performance.

Sancho lived up to his expectations. In the 17th round match of the 2023-24 German Bundesliga against Darmstadt 98, he came on as a substitute in the 10th minute of the second half to record his help. In an assist to Marco Reus’ goal, Dortmund declared its place.

Sancho displayed good performance even though it was only a short period of time. On the day, he played 35 minutes and touched the ball 29 times. Even though he had few passes, his success rate was only 60 percent (No. 2), but he succeeded in key pass (No. 1), creating big chances and displaying ability to take advantage of small chances. When he attempted to dribble both times, he seemed to have more confidence. This clearly shows that Sancho has room for survival.
