Klinsmann: Germans have no idea why BVB star Sancho doesn't start for England

Jurgen Klinsmann admits German football fans have no idea why Jadon Sancho doesn't play for England.

Sancho has lit up the Bundesliga over the past two seasons playing for Borussia Dortmund.

The 21-year-old, who is close to joining Manchester United, was once again left out of the starting line-up for England's clash with Germany on Tuesday, which the Three Lions won 2-0.

Reacting to Sancho's latest snub, Klinsmann told the BBC: "It's a topic that us Germans, we discuss up and down.

"We cannot understand that Jadon Sancho is not playing for England, or not getting more minutes because we believe he is a very special player who has a different gear.

"He has unpredictability, so we are surprised he doesn't get more minutes."
