Jadon Sancho has capped an impressive week by being awarded Bundesliga Player of the Month for October following a series of impressive displays for Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho, 18 became the youngest player in Dortmund’s history to score twice in a match when he netted against Hertha Berlin at the end of last month.
Jadon Sancho was also on target a week earlier, notching the opening goal after just two minutes in a 4-0 victory at Stuttgart.
Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc hailed the talented winger: “I’ve rarely seen anything like it,” he said.
“He’s phenomenal. Even if he’s a different kind of player, he reminds me of Ousmane Dembele, in the sense that he’s almost impossible to defend against. But unlike Dembele he’s only 18, and he hadn’t played a minute in the top flight before he arrived.”
He is currently in his second season with the German club, having joined from Manchester City in August 2017.
“I am very happy that I have decided to change to Borussia Dortmund, because this city lives football like no other,” he said.
Sancho won the award ahead of Dortmund team-mate Achraf Hakimi, Eintracht Frankfurt duo Luka Jovic and Sebastien Haller, Jonas Hofmann [Borussia Monchengladbach] and Marcel Halstenberg [RB Leipzig].
