Sancho back in training ahead of Man City clash in Germany

Borussia Dortmund have disclosed that forward Jadon Sancho is back in training ahead of the crunch UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg fixture against Manchester City at Signal Iduna Park on Wednesday.

The England international has been out of action for more than a month after sustaining a muscle injury.

Sancho has not featured for Dortmund since they beat Borussia Monchengladbach in the quarter-finals of the German Cup on March 2.

He also played no part in the 2:1 loss to his former club Manchester City in the first leg last week. Furthermore, he was absent from England’s 2022 World Cup qualifying games against San Marino, Albania, and Poland during the international break.

His return to training was disclosed by the club in a tweet on Sunday; “Jadon Sancho returned to training to complete an individual session this morning,”.

Sancho is a product of Man City’s academy and left the club after rejecting a new contract at the club in 2017 when he was 17 and opted for Dortmund.

The player has since established himself as one of the best players in the Bundesliga and has 6 goals and 9 assists in the Bundesliga this season.

Meanwhile, BVB returned to winning ways in the Bundesliga last weekend with a 3:2 win away to Stuttgart and are now 7 points behind the top 4.

This is in contrast to Man City who lead the Premier League table although they suffered a shock 2:1 loss to Leeds United at the Etihad in the same weekend.

The team that comes out tops after the two legs will face the winner of the Bayern vs PSG fixture in the semis of the competition.

Jadon Sancho has been continually linked with an exit from Borussia Dortmund in recent seasons and this move could materialize if they miss out on next season’s UEFA Champions League.
