Jadon Sancho is lashing out at those who didn’t believe in him after helping Borussia Dortmund reach the Champions League final.

Dortmund secured a 1-0 victory at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday evening to beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 on aggregate. Mats Hummels headed in the only goal as the German side produced some rearguard action and used their luck to overturn the odds and book a place in the final against either Bayern Munich or Real Madrid.




Sancho started both matches for Edin Terzic’s side and appears to have rediscovered a love of football since joining Dortmund on loan from Manchester United in January. The 24-year-old winger left United under a cloud after a very public row with Erik ten Hag and Dortmund’s run in the Champions League gave him the opportunity to send a message to Old Trafford.

Sancho had a good time after the victory in Paris, with a video posted on social media showing him belting out Adele’s ballad ‘Someone Like You’. Dortmund’s official accounts also made mischief, mocking PSG with a historic tweet and using Canadian rapper Drake to make a point about Sancho.

The club’s Instagram account shared a photo of Sancho partying in Paris with Drake superimposed below. In the clip, Drake can be heard saying, “To the rest of you non-believers, underachievers, tweeters, and deleters… You’re making me sick to my stomach.” In response to the post, Sancho wrote: “LOL FACTS!”

He kept things simpler on his own page. To his 10 million followers, he wrote: “Champions League Final! Wow wow wow, Amazing! @bvb09. WEMBLEY, WE’RE COMING!”

Sancho has scored just three goals and two assists in 21 games for Dortmund since January, but his performances against PSG showed that statistics can be deceiving. He was a constant threat in the first leg, terrorizing left-back Nuno Mendes with his fearless dribbling.
