BVB hit Jadon Sancho with record fine: He pushes limits

Borussia Dortmund have hit Jadon Sancho with a record fine.

Sancho was dropped for their 1-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach after arriving late from international duty with England last week.

And BILD says he's also been handed a club record €100,000 fine.

BVB chief Michael Zorc said of the ex-Manchester City starlet: "It's not that it happens often, but it's not the first time.

“Jadon is a good boy, but he is still very, very young. He quickly grew up and occasionally pushes the limits. And then we are there to set those limits.

“We all know that Jadon is an excellent player, but it's not about the player. We have our responsibility to the entire team for the club. That is why this decision was the only right one for us."
