Jadon Sancho Warned On Leaving Borussia Dortmund Too Soon
March. 11, 2020
Liverpool legend John Barnes has suggested Jadon Sancho would be better off staying at Borussia Dortmund beyond the summer.
The 19-year-old has been heavily linked with a £100 million move to Anfield in the summer window, but Barnes has warned him to “be careful” over a move to his former club.
Sancho has 16 goals and 15 assists in 33 games for the German side this season, and is believed to be interested in a return to England.
The ex-England winger raised concerns over Sancho’s potential game time, if he was to sign for the European champions.
He said: “If Jadon Sancho is willing to come to Liverpool and not play every week and sit on the bench, then absolutely he should come to Liverpool. “But I always tell young players to be careful and play at a high level for four-five years before moving to a bigger club.”
“(Mohamed) Salah and (Sadio) Mane have been around for four or five seasons now and have shown their quality and experience.
“Sancho has been around for 18 months and needs to show that consistency over a three-year period before he costs £100 million to a huge club,” Barnes said.
