Jadon Sancho relieved to break Dortmund goalscoring drought

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jadon Sancho reflected on the weekend's victory over Werder Bremen and breaking his goalscoring drought for the club.

Sancho returned to the club on loan from Manchester United in January and has made eight appearances thus far. His last goal for BvB came almost three years ago before finding the net in a 2-1 win over Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Although the 23-year-old was not happy with his overall performance, he was delighted to get on the scoresheet.

"It felt really good. It took a while, but I stayed patient. I had a feeling this week that I was going to score. I stayed positive, even if my performance didn't always show it and I've disappointed some people a bit in recent weeks. I'm not entirely satisfied with the game in Bremen either; I could've played better and contributed more. But we got the three points; that's the most important thing," said Sancho.

In his first spell at Dortmund, Sancho registered a goal involvement  in almost every match but has come nowhere near that in his second spell and the Englishman admits the pressure was taking its toll.

"Yes, you always have pressure. In my first spell at BVB, I registered a goal involvement in almost every match. So I can understand that the fans expect a lot of me. I do from myself too. I could also accept it if some people were angry with me. I want to continue to improve for the team," he said.

Sancho then expressed gratitude to manager Edin Terzic for showing faith in him.

"It's not only Edin whose trust I feel. Everyone at BVB knows what I can do on the pitch. They all trust me. I'm very grateful that they give me the opportunity to show what I can do every week. I hope it continues that way," he added.
