Hoffenheim come from behind to draw with Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund technical director Michael Zorc has praised English talent

Borussia Dortmund technical director Michael Zorc has praised English talent

I would love to play in front of my hometown.

Champions Bayern Munich beat Schalke 04 3-1 yesterday to climb back into second place and cut the gap on Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund to five points.

Jadon Sancho scored the opener and was electric against Hoffenheim. The teenagers first met playing in the same under-11 team at the 2011 Southwark Youth Games in London.

"We don't say "you are going to play, definitely", we say "there will be opportunities".

"It's very nice to have a coach like that - he's very passionate about what he's doing".

Jadon Sancho has told ESPN FC that he was inspired to leave Manchester City and join Borussia Dortmund following Christian Pulisic's success at the club.

But who speaks the best German?

"After training now, I only practice with my left foot - just dribbling, shooting", Sancho said.

We've got Chelsea and Liverpool to look forward to in the next two games. "Whoever feels sorry for themselves will not play probably against Chelsea ".

He raised eyebrows when he quit Premier League giants City, unhappy with his prospects, and jumped at the chance to prove himself at Dortmund.

"I felt at the time I needed something different", he explained.

"I wasn't at the away game, but I was at the home game when we lost and they are a good side".

Against Hoffenheim, Sancho made seven take-ons, attempted four shots - two of which were on target and made two crosses as well as that opening goal.

The ratings for these players could have been so much higher if the final 20 minutes never happened, with that in mind here are the payer ratings for the Borussia Dortmund players.

His meteoric rise does not appear to have gone to his head, shaking hands with reporters and photographers before the interview in a refreshing display of manners in modern football.

At the last count, he has netted six times alongside 10 assists in the Bundesliga this campaign and also debuted for England's Three Lions against the U.S. at Wembley previous year.

The result will give Mauricio Pochettino food for thought before his Tottenham team hosts Dortmund Wednesday at Wembley in the Champions League, last 16, first leg. As quoted by the Telegraph, Zorc said: "The biggest advantage - and it is what young boys are looking for - is that they have the chance to play".
