Sancho: Chelsea star convinced me about BVB

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has spoken of his decision to quit Manchester City.

And Sancho has named Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic as the inspiration behind his exit back in 2017.

"The Manchester move was okay. I was still in England and I knew I could go back home. It was a bit further away but I could see the family every three weeks or so.

"Settling there was not a problem," he said at an appearance with Head and Shoulders.

"[Dortmund] have a good history of playing young players. I believed what they said. Christian Pulisic was there – he was 18 at the time and was starting every week. I felt I could compete with him."
