Matthaus was confused why Guardiola release Jadon Sancho

Manchester City’s decision to release one of their talented young stars, Jadon Sancho to Borussia Dortmund astonished the German legend, Jadon Sancho. Especially there is Pep Guardiola, a skilled coach to find talented young players.

Jadon Sancho, the latter of which is widely discussed, is indeed a product of the Manchester City academy. However, the 19-year-old had difficulty finding a place in the first team. He then decided to join the Borussia Dortmund.

As a young player, Jadon Sancho certainly wants to get the chance to appear more. It could be said that Dortmund was lucky enough to only spend 8 million Euros to recruit the England national team winger.

Career and Performance Jadon Sancho improved greatly since wearing the Die Borussen costume. In this season, the 19-year-old winger has even scored 17 goals and 19 assists in 36 matches in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Lothar Matthaus admitted that he had seen Sancho’s talent since he was still playing in England U-17 national team at Euro U-17. He was quite happy to see the development of the performance shown by the player so far.

“I was watching at the gym and I stopped the training session to call my friend who works there to ask, ‘Who are the English players on the left wing?’

“My friend told me, ‘His name is Sancho and he plays for Manchester City.’ I thought ‘Wow! He is a great player and he will have a great career.” Matthaus said to Goal.

The prediction of the German legend is correct, now Sancho has become a battle for a number of European giants. But on the one hand he feels confused by the fact that Pep Guardiola can unleash talented young talents like Jadon Sancheo.

In fact, the coach from Catalunya is known to be very adept at seeing the potential of a young player. Evidenced by what he did before in Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

“Then he signed a contract with Dortmund six months later and I said, How come Pep Guardiola let this great player go?”

“I didn’t understand it at the time, because I knew Guardiola had a good eye for young talent. And Sancho has speed, makes assists, scores goals and always runs.” He said.
