Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho sidelined by ankle ligament injury

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has been ruled out for several weeks with an ankle ligament injury, the club have announced.

Sancho, 17, joined from Manchester City in August and had worked his way into first-team contention, feauturing in all the club's games so far in 2018.

Head coach Peter Stoger brought him on as a 72nd-minute substitute in the 3-2 win at Cologne, where he picked up the ligament problem in the closing moments.

BVB said on Monday that Sancho, who has so far made six appearances and set up one goal, would be sidelined for several weeks.
