THEY SAID: “For those who don’t know Jadon San­cho, you need to know him – he’s that good,” said for­mer New­cas­tle, Manch­ester City and Liver­pool striker Craig Bel­lamy. COM­PARED TO: Ney­mar: he usu­ally op­er­ates from the left wing and uses his drib­bling skills to cause may­hem. THE STORY SO FAR: Hail­ing out of Ken­ning­ton, south Lon­don, San­cho joined Wat­ford aged seven be­fore be­ing snapped up my Manch­ester City two years ago. He was named player of the tour­na­ment as Eng­land reached the fi­nals of the U17 Eu­ros in the sum­mer – pre­vi­ous win­ners of that honour in­clude Toni Kroos, Wayne Rooney, Cesc Fabre­gas and, er, Con­nor Wick­ham. San­cho also helped Man City to last sea­son’s FA Youth Cup fi­nal but has now joined Dort­mund and been handed Ous­mane Dem­bele’s No.7 shirt af­ter fear­ing that his first-team op­por­tu­ni­ties might be lim­ited at the Eti­had. Ar­se­nal, Spurs and RB Leipzig had also ex­pressed an in­ter­est in the sought-af­ter young­ster. SO­CIAL ME­DIA: His In­sta­gram page con­sists of clips of him tear­ing up un­sus­pect­ing de­fences, plus a video of him lis­ten­ing to mu­sic by rap­per Lil Yachty, who has been known for sam­pling both the Mario Bros and Ru­grats themes in the past. Ran­dom. DID YOU KNOW? Born in 2000, he is el­i­gi­ble for Trinidad and Tobago, where his par­ents orig­i­nate from.
