Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho has been a sensation ever since he quit Manchester City for the Bundesliga giants. The 18-year-old has managed to capture the attention of major European clubs including that of ex-Liverpool midfielder, Paul Ince.
Speaking to the Daily Express, Ince said, “I feel with Sancho, the boy’s done well and he’s been brave to make that decision to go and play in Germany. He needs to keep playing games until he’s 19 or 20. Then maybe Liverpool should start looking at him. And not just him, there’s other kids out there [in Germany] doing well.”
Sancho is only 18 and already a key component of BVB. He was leading all of Europe in assists this season for a significant point of time and was even awarded the 2018 October Bundesliga Player Of The Month.
The teenager earned his first call-up to the England national side against Croatia and Spain and already has 3 senior caps.
Ince further added, “I think when you look at Sancho, let’s not go overboard. He’s only 18. We don’t want to make these players better than what they are the moment, they’re still only young and have a long way to go. We as a nation have a tendency to build people up from such a young age and then knock them back down.”
Liverpool are already covered in the wing department with players like Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri in the side but there is no telling what Sancho might turn into over the next couple of years. The Reds should be keeping an eye on the youngster for future recruitment.
