Jadon Sancho says he had a “point to prove” playing against former club Manchester City this morning.
Sancho left City as a 17-year-old in the summer of 2017 due to a lack of first-team opportunities to join Borussia Dortmund.
He impressed in Chicago as Dortmund beat City 1-0 in a pre-season game thanks to a penalty from Mario Gotze.
And he said afterwards: “It was nice to see my old team-mates. I am happy we won and just happy to play against my old club and I had a point to prove and I think I did well in the game. Hopefully it carries on through the season.
“I am very motivated for the season and very excited because we have a special team and I am very grateful for that.”
