In Borussia Dortmund’s 4-0 decimation of arch rivals Schalke in the Revierderby, Jason Sancho became the youngest player in the German Bundesliga to score 35 goals, at 20 years 10 months and 26 days.
Sancho managed to score his 35th Bundesliga goal in the 42nd minute before assisting Erling Haaland’s 45th minute strike to double their lead going into the break.
The Englishman has managed to get the numbers in as of late, managing to turn things around with 5 goals and 8 assists in 20 games that he has played so far in the league. Moreover, he has also scored two and assisted three in the Champions League.
The 19/20 season saw the former Manchester City youth product emerge onto the scene as one of the brightest youngsters in Europe, finishing the campaign with double digits in goals as well as assists.
After being linked to a move with Manchester United in the summer, Sancho’s form dropped and he couldn’t get going since the beginning of the season. However, he has managed to get himself back on track with the numbers coming in.
Here is what the England international had to say regarding the victory against Schalke:
“I know for this club that this game is everything,” he said. “So I knew today that was a big one for the fans.
“Especially because they can’t celebrate it with us, I had to show to the camera that it was very important to us.
“I’m just very happy and delighted for the win. We just have to carry on this form for the next game.”
