Jadon Sancho, a Manchester United loanee, begged his Borussia Dortmund colleague Niclas Fullkrug to take a penalty that he won during their Bundesliga match against Koln, but Fullkrug refused.

Niclas Fullkrug, a striker for Borussia Dortmund, has given an explanation for why he forbade Jadon Sancho from taking the penalty kick that the Manchester United loanee gained during their 4-0 victory over Koln on Saturday.

The 23-year-old Sancho believed he had given himself the best opportunity to score his first goal for Dortmund after rejoining the German team till the conclusion of the current campaign by winning the foul. The £73 million winger begged Fullkrug to “give me the ball, give the ball,” after he and United manager Erik ten Hag had a falling out. However, the Germany international blanked him and took it himself.

Luckily for Dortmund, Fullkrug doubled the lead. Eight minutes after the incident, manager Edin Terzic substituted Sancho, who had until then enjoyed an outstanding second full start for the Bundesliga heavyweights.

After the game, Fullkrug, a former Werder Bremen hero who didn’t play with Sancho in his first stint from 2017 to 2021, said to Sky Germany, “We also have a small ranking.” Normally, Marco (Reus) and Emre (Can) and I are at the top.”

After that, the 30-year-old backed Sancho, saying, “Jadon would have definitely converted it, too.” He was desperate to score for Dortmund once more. Coming up next week is that.

After starting him on Saturday, manager Terzic gave the United loanee more support before the game, saying, “He did really well when he came in last week [registering an assist against Darmstadt].” He also performed incredibly well in training. Given his recent short-term assignment and his excellent training results, he deserves to start.”

“It’s true that Jadon arrived here in good condition, yet we also know how the past few weeks and months have gone for him – and thank god he wasn’t injured [against Darmstadt],” the German-Croatian coach, who has been under criticism recently, disclosed on Thursday.

There was no animosity between Jadon Sancho and Niclas Fullkrug.

He’s glad to be back on the field, and he’s performed well this week. We enjoy every training session. We tested him and Ian [Maatsen, the Chelsea loanee left-back] once again on Tuesday to see how they performed, and we’re pleased with both of them.”

When Dortmund welcomes Bochum on Sunday, Sancho will be looking to score his first goal since joining the team. During his first stint, the 23-year-old, who also hopes to play for England at Euro 2024, scored 50 goals and provided 64 assists in 138 games.
