Sancho’s Emotional Tattoo Explained As He Returns to Man Utd Training

  • Jadon Sancho has returned to Manchester United training after weeks of hiatus for a personal fitness programme.
  • The English winger has been underwhelming for Manchester United since his move for Dortmund.
  • One of his saddest moments in life was the passing of his younger brother which he commemorated with a tattoo.

Jadon Sancho was one of the best young English wingers when he was plying his trade at Borussia Dortmund in the top tier of German football, but now he does not even make the list.

Manchester United splashed £73m on him to secure his services and placed him on a whopping £340,000 a week, but after playing under three different managers, he appears like a bad investment.

He was recently sent on a special recovery physical and mental programme after hitting a low. The last time he went through such a low in his life was following the death of his brother whom he wrote a poem for and tattooed on his arm.

Sancho explains emotional tattoo

According to Body Art Guru, Sancho has several tattoos ranging from cartoons which he professed to love as a child to an emotional tattoo of a poem which he wrote as a dedication to his late brother.

He explained this to Man Utd official website when he joined the club, and he read the poem out in full, which reads:

You and me will stay together, you made us happy, you brought us joy, you were a special baby boy. I couldn't wait till you grew up, teach you football and win the cup. But you're gone what can I do? Baby brother, we love you.

He also revealed he was and still is an inspiration to him, and hopefully he would spur him on in one of the most difficult times of his professional career.

Sancho not fit to play soon

Sports Brief earlier reported that Erik Ten Hag ruled Sancho as unfit to play soon, about a month ago and could not give a timeline to his return.

Despite returning to team training earlier this week, it remains unclear when the 23-year-old will be considered for selection amidst ongoing string of wins, since the return of club football after the World Cup.

The first game since his return is the away trip to Selhurst Park to play Patrick Vieira's Crystal Palace, it came too soon for him to be named in the squad, coming off a private recovery programme.
