Postado Fevereiro 12, 2019

The 18-year-old Sancho insists his late brother means a lot to him.

The teenager will be back in the country this week when he plays in the Champions League for Dortmund against Spurs, on this basis Mauricio Pochettino will need a good plan to stop him. "I couldn't wait till you grew up, teach you football and win the cup. Baby brother, we love you", he said.

Recently, Sancho was bereaved again after he lost his grandmother to the cold hands of death died and made a decision to dedicate his goal during the Bundesliga clash against Schalke to his kid brother and granny.

"That goal was for him and my nan, who passed away that week".

The Bundesliga leaders have only themselves to blame after Jadon Sancho, in the absence of Dortmund's captain, Marco Reus, took control of Dortmund's game in the first half, firing in for the lead in the 32nd minute and slicing through the hapless Hoffenheim defence at will. I got emotional, but family is important. "That's why I do this football thing, to make them proud and happy", Sancho added.

The pair have essentially taken opposite career paths, with Sancho leaving Manchester City in hope of a prosperous career in the Bundesliga and Pulisic heading to the Premier League to continue his own development. In addition, he also scored against Bayer Leverkusen last season.

"Everyone's said I exploded in 2018 and, honestly, that's how it feels", he recalled.
"If you'd told me a year ago that I'd be talking to you now, I'd have thought you were insane".

"It was insane how many clubs wanted me - it shows how well you're doing, but I always felt Dortmund was right for me", Sancho summed up.
