Sancho dropped by Dortmund for Gladbach clash

England winger Jadon Sancho has been dropped for Borussia Dortmund's Bundesliga match against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Sancho was nominated for the 2019 Golden Boy award this week but does not feature in Lucien Favre's matchday squad for the crunch clash following reports he returned late from international duty this week.

Discussing the teenager at his pre-match news conference, Favre said: "The expectations on him from everyone are enormous. We forget that he is only 19 years old. That's dangerous. 

"He still has a lot to learn. He's a great player, no discussion about that. But he still has to learn, he needs to continue having fun and making progress."

Sancho has scored three goals and supplied five assists in Bundesliga games this season but started on the bench in the 2-2 draw against Freiburg last time out.

Runners-up to Bayern Munich last season, Dortmund have shown inconsistent form this time around and head into the Gladbach match in ninth – four points behind their opponents, who are top.
