Jadon Sancho brought up his 50th Bundesliga assist as the Borussia Dortmund forward starred in his side’s 3-0 win over Arminia.

The 20-year-old became the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach that milestone as he also grabbed a goal from the penalty spot.

The England international laid off the ball to teammate Mahmoud Dahoud who then fired into the back of the net at the start of the second half.

Sancho then cooly netted from the spot to make it 2-0 to Dortmund before Reinier Carvalho made it three with nine minutes to go.

He has now reached the 50 assists milestone in just 99 league games and has 36 goals to go along with that. No other players has ever reached that mark before playing 100 times.

Sancho had a relatively slow start to the campaign following the fallout of Manchester United’s failed attempts to bring him to Old Trafford.

Bosses at the club even put it down to the speculation surrounding his future.

Chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke claimed: “Maybe Jadon had subconsciously prepared for a move a bit.

“I believe he at least thought about it that much that he lost a bit of his ease.”

And former boss Lucien Favre added: “There was a lot of talk about Jadon in the summer, something like that can also have an influence.”

Sancho is now in red-hot form, though, as he has four goals and four assists in his last seven games in all competitions.
