Dortmund Manager Terzic Uncertain About Stellar Sancho’s Return from Manchester United Loan

Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic praised the “brilliant” Jadon Sancho after the England winger impressed again in Saturday’s 2-0 Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.

Returning to England for the first time since he came back to Dortmund on loan in January after a miserable time at Manchester United, Sancho was a major factor as the Germans threatened to take the lead before going down to two second-half goals at Wembley.

Edin Terzic admitted uncertainty over Jadon Sancho’s return to Borussia Dortmund but hailed the “brilliant” winger’s future Champions League appearances.

The Manchester United loanee couldn’t thwart Real Madrid from clinching their 15th European title last Saturday.

Late goals from Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Junior secured victory for Carlo Ancelotti’s squad at Wembley, with Sancho on familiar turf.

Sancho is slated to rejoin Old Trafford following his fallout with manager Erik ten Hag, despite Terzic’s admiration for the BVB talent.

“Working with Jadon is a joy,” Terzic mentioned post-2-0 loss. “His future is unknown, but another Champions League final awaits him.

“We didn’t discuss his [Dortmund] future because the present was pivotal—playing a Champions League final on home soil is monumental for him.

“He exudes happiness around us, bringing palpable joy. For these six months, he’s been luminous for our squad.”

“Although it took time for him to regain peak form, his quality uplifted our gameplay instantly.

“Not only did he elevate his performance but also enhanced those around him. His talent is indisputable.”

Dortmund, steered by Terzic, might feel a missed opportunity to capitalize against Madrid in the first half.

Niclas Fullkrug’s strike hit the post while Karim Adeyemi rounded Thibaut Courtois but missed the mark.

Dortmund’s streak of losing major European finals extends; falling to Feyenoord in 2002, Bayern in 2013, and now Madrid.

Yet, the seasoned defender Mats Hummels, who played throughout this Champions League journey, beams with pride for Terzic’s side.

“We demonstrated courage, heart, and football prowess,” he shared with Germany’s ZDF network.

“We failed to score, then succumbed to another goal—Madrid’s usual style.

“Their quality shines through, albeit luck played a role today.”
