Borussia Dortmund have been without Jadon Sancho for almost a month now but the winger has finally returned to training, right before the German side take on Manchester City in the Champions League.
Sancho picked up a muscle injury at the start of March but on Sunday, the England international completed an individual training session, as confirmed by the club’s official Twitter account.
Dortmund tweeted: “Hey, Mr. Sancho! Jadon Sancho returned to training to complete an individual session this morning.”

The return of Jadon Sancho will be a big boost for Borussia Dortmund but as per the reports, the game against City will come too early for the youngster to make a comeback.
While Sancho will be watching from the stands in midweek but the manager should be able to choose Marco Reus, Mats Hummels and Jude Bellingham in the starting line-up despite all of them being taken off early against Stuttgart during the weekend.
Sancho remains on the sidelines along with players like Axel Witsel, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Marcel Schmelzer and Youssoufa Moukoko.
Ansgar Knauff was a surprise starter in the first leg and also found the back of the net during the weekend so he remains a logical choice on the right wing for the second leg.
