Dortmund coach: 'Sancho's free-kick was a relief.'

Wed 25 November 2020 | 10:49

The English star will return to his best shape for The BVB, as indicated by their manager.

Borussia Dortmund

's manager Lucien Favre is sure

Jadon Sancho

will recover his best shape subsequent to scoring in Tuesday's victory over Club Brugge. 

Sancho turned into the first English footballer to score a free-kick in the Champions League while playing for a non-English team since

David Beckham

for Real Madrid in 2005. 

The striker has been not able to repeat his satisfying records last season when he scored 20 times and gave 19 assists in 44 games in all rivalries. 

Sancho's goal against Brugge was his third in the season, plus four assists, in 10 fixtures. 

Favre was glad to see the 20-year-old – who was vigorously connected with Manchester United during the last summer transfer window – on the scoresheet and trusts he will return to his best.

"Of course, I'm really happy that he scored again. A very beautiful goal from a direct free-kick. We have a few players who can do that. He did it really, really well," he told a news conference.

"His goal has relieved us. A two-goal cushion coming one minute from the break was important, that was good for all of us.

"All over, he played really well, ran a lot. But I repeat, it is normal, a player cannot always be in his best shape. Sometimes it's like this, then like that."

"I stayed very calm, just like my colleagues. We know what our players are like.

"Sometimes I say that they cannot be in their best form all year. That’s impossible. Last season was special for Jadon. Of course, he should digest that. But he will come back bit by bit."
