Wayne Rooney on Jadon Sancho: “He should stay there (Borussia Dortmund).”

DC United and former Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney has urged 19-year-old Jadon Sancho to remain at Borussia Dortmund.

Speaking to Bild, the 33-year-old said: “Dortmund is a great club with great fans, they trust their young players and you can see that in Sancho and the progress he has made in the last 12 months. It’s fun to watch him, he’s doing really well at Borussia Dortmund.

“Now Jadon has to ask himself whether he would get the playing time he gets in Dortmund when he moves to England, or would he just sit on the bench? Playing time is so important for a young player like Jadon, so if he gets the most playing time in Dortmund, he should stay there.”

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the England international.
