Dortmund and Manchester United are in a stand-off over the 20-year-old winger, who the former says will stay in Germany this season.
For his part, Sancho is just happy to now be a role model for his younger teammates.
"I love playing with this lot," Sancho told BVB-TV. "It is a special bunch. We've got some special young players coming up. I am really happy to share the pitch with them and guide them.
"I was once in their shoes, playing with the seniors. I am happy for them.
"I joined [Dortmund] when I was 17. Some of the lads are the same age.
"I've been there and done that. I can guide them in what's good and what isn't. I can hopefully motivate them as well."
