Manchester United wanted to sign Sancho in the summer window and Sancho wanted to move to Old Trafford, but the club were unwilling to match Dortmund's £108million price tag and walked away from a deal, despite him being their top transfer target.
Sancho has now given a rare interview stating his belief that he will turn his form around after a difficult period.
"I am just happy that I am playing," Sancho told DAZN. "I have coaches and teammates that believe in me. Recently, it's been a hard situation for me. But it's all about how I come back and have performances like this [against Brugge]. They will hopefully get me back to the top, how I was playing before."
Sancho and United star Mason Greenwood were among those pipped by Dortmund striker Erling Haaland to the prestigious European Golden Boy award in recent days.
The 20-year-old congratulated his BVB teammate — who has also been on United's transfer radar — on picking up the prize.
"He deserves the Golden Boy award," Sancho added on Haaland. "He works hard on and off the pitch. He deserves everything that is coming his way."
