Jadon Sancho has been backed to rediscover his best form for Borussia Dortmund by the club's sporting director Michael Zorc despite a slow start to the season.

The England international winger is yet to score in the Bundesliga this season despite starting seven of Dortmund's league games this term, though the 20-year-old has scored twice in the Champions League group stages.

The form massively differs from the 17 goals and 17 assists he registered last season, but Zorc claims Sancho is trying his best and the Dortmund chief is confident the winger will get back on track.

Dortmund director Michael Zorc said he is hoping Jadon Sancho will remain with the club in the coming season, calling him 'an outstanding footballer' And Zorc insisted it was important to 'stick to the facts' with Sancho still having two years on his contract. Jadon Sancho has been heavily linked

Borussia Dortmund have ruled out the possibility of selling Jadon Sancho in January despite growing interest from Premier League sides in the young winger.

Zorc told a press conference this week: 'I believe it is easy to see that he is not in the best of form. I can tell he tries hard when he's subbed onto the pitch. He tries to force the lightness and fluidity that he has onto himself.

'Jadon is a player who doesn't talk a lot but who delivers answers on the pitch. Whether this is tomorrow, in a week or at some other point, I don't know. What I do know is that it will happen.'

Sancho has failed to hit the heights that earned him regular praise in the yellow of Dortmund last season, with his statistics much weaker this season in comparison.

As well as a lack of goals, Sancho's chance creation numbers are down - with the England winger making just 0.33 big chances per match, his lowest season total since his first Bundesliga season in 2017.

                     Clive Allen is one of many men to represent both Arsenal and Man City, but which team got the better out of those players? As the teams face off on Sunday we take a look at who got the better deal.                                                                              Allen is a curious case. He began his professional career at QPR in the late 1970s, before making the move across London to Arsenal in 1980. His time at Highbury proved short-lived, however, with the Gunners almost immediately including him as a makeweight in the deal to sign Kenny Sansom from Crystal Palace.                                                                              Nine years later he joined Man City, but by his standards was under-par during his two-season spell, scoring 21 goals in 68 appearances. He then returned to London with Chelsea, the latest of seven capital clubs he represented – the others being Tottenham, West Ham and Millwall.                                                                              Rating per club: Arsenal 1/10, Man City 6/10

This lack of form led to Sancho being dropped twice by Lucien Favre in November, a Champions League away win over Club Brugge and a trip to Hertha Berlin two weeks later. Dortmund won both games, scoring a combined total of eight goals.

Sancho's signature was pursued by Manchester United for most of this year's summer transfer window, with the 20-year-old a top target for Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Dortmund set a deadline of August 10 for United to meet their £108million valuation for the player, with United failing to meet it and a move never materialised.

Sancho ended up staying at the Ruhr-land club and is now a very key attacking option for Dortmund given star striker Erling Haaland is out until January with a torn hamstring.

Dortmund currently sit fourth in the Bundesliga going into their match away at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday afternoon.

Lucien Favre's side sit four points behind leaders and reigning champions Bayern Munich, while they are also through to the Champions League knockout rounds.

Sancho has been in slightly better scoring form for England since the start of the season, netting a low curling strike in a friendly win over Ireland in November.

The 20-year-old has been capped 18 times by Gareth Southgate overall, scoring three times.
