Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho to return "in two weeks"
The 17-year-old England youth international damaged ankle ligaments in his side’s 3-2 win away to Cologne at the start of February, forcing him off the pitch just 18 minutes after coming on as a substitute for Christian Pulisic.
Sancho revealed the injury update in a video posted on Twitter, saying: “Hello Bundesliga fans, how are you doing? I’m Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. I’ll be back in two weeks.”

Sancho has attracted plaudits for his fearlessness, trickery and directness in his six Bundesliga outings so far, having only moved to Dortmund in summer 2017. He notched his first assist in the league in BVB’s 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin on Matchday 19, a feat that no doubt contributed to him winning the Tag Heuer Bundesliga Rookie of the Month award in January.
If the London native’s recovery continues to go to plan, he could return to Peter Stöger’s squad in time for the Matchday 26 encounter at home to Eintracht Frankfurt.
