Sancho feeling pressure from expectation - Delaney


Thomas Delaney believes his Borussia Dortmund teammate Jadon Sancho's form has been affected by the hype surrounding the teenager.

The England winger has contributed 17 goals and 20 assists in all competitions for Dortmund this year and is being heavily linked with a 100-million Euro move back to the Premier League this summer.

But Sancho hasn't started for his club since the Bundesliga's restart this month and Delaney thinks his teammate is feeling the pressure.

"Clearly, one of the biggest talents that I've played with," the Danish midfielder told ESPN. "With that talent comes a lot of pressure and I think he slowly starts to feel that from the England national team and clubs surrounding him now.

"Up until this point he's been a talent performing very well, performing better than what he is expected to do but there was always going to be a next step and that's going to be interesting. Next step in his career and his development.

"Only looking at his skills, he definitely has what it takes to become one of the five biggest players in the world. You see big talents go to waste and I would say that he's already done enough to prove himself.

"He's 19 and he's got the most goal involvement in the league together with Timo Werner an Lewandowski which is amazing but he should strive for more."
