BVB star Sancho breaks Bundesliga record with hat-trick against Paderborn

Jadon Sancho scored a hat-trick as Borussia Dortmund hammered Paderborn 6-1 on Sunday.

Dortmund were unable to break the deadlock in the first-half, but it was a completely different story in the second stanza.

Thorgan Hazard, Achraf Hakimi and Marcel Schmelzer also got on the scoresheet.

The hat-trick made Sancho - who has been linked with Manchester United - the youngest player ever to reach 30 Bundesliga goals.

"I only said one sentence during the half-time break: 'We need to keep doing what we're doing'," he said.

"We pressed well, we tired out our opponents, and it was clear that they wouldn't be able to keep up the tempo all the way to the final whistle.

"We wanted to make sure they couldn't hit us on the counter, as they have a lot of pace up top.

"We were able to maintain the intensity we showed in the first half and the only real change we made was some alterations to our wide players' movements."
