Jadon Sancho Broke A Defender’s Ankles With One Body Feint And It’s So Satisfying To See


Jadon Sancho has managed to floor Holstein Kiel’s Fin Bartels with a body feint and without a single touch of the ball.

The Borussia Dortmund winger is strutting his stuff in this evening’s DFB-Pokal semi-final and Holstein defenders are already sick of him.

Inside the first seven minutes, Sancho decided to shimmy to the right in an attempt to catch Bartels off guard.

He did much more than that. The 34-year-old collapsed to the turf in a heap while flailing his arms in the air.

Sancho then continued his run down the wing to attack the space left behind.

At just 21-years-old, Sancho has already become one of the world’s deadliest wingers with the ball at, or even not, at his feet.

He’s been linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer and is likely a starter in England’s Euro 2020 side.

Fans have reacted to the remarkable piece of skill and they believe Sancho is approaching a world class level.

One fan commented: “Sancho is so good.”

Another added: “Guy didn’t want the smoke so he took himself out.”

While a third said: “Sancho is just too much.”

Dortmund are currently 5-0 up thanks to a double from Gio Reyna as well as strikes from Marco Reus, Thorgan Hazard and Jude Bellingham.

Erling Haaland, who is at the middle of what could be this summer’s biggest transfer story, is not in the squad.

The 20-year-old, with 37 goals in 38 appearances this season, has a transfer release clause believed to be between €75 million and €100 million, but it doesn’t come into play until 2022.

Dortmund could miss out on Champions League football next season, with the team currently outside the top four, but, according to ESPN, there’s nothing in his contract that means that could trigger a move this year.

Reports have linked Haaland to a move this summer but Dortmund will be holding out for big money as they don’t want to sell the Norwegian.

However, according to Caught Offside reporter Leah Smith, Raiola is threatening to take his client to Dortmund’s rivals Bayern next summer if he’s not allowed to leave this year.
