Why Manchester United should support Borussia Dortmund to win the Bundesliga – Richard Fay


It didn’t take long for football fans to get back on track because the sport they love finally came back this weekend.

With the eyes of the world watching, it is the bona fide phenomenon Erling Haaland who continues to show his superb ability, while Julian Brandt shows Premier League clubs why it should be worth moving in the summer.

Manchester United fans were frustrated that Jadon Sancho hadn’t started the match, but even in the absence of his injury, there were a multitude of exciting talents before his late appearance.

Dortmund’s energetic victory brought them just one point behind Bayern Munich before the latter’s meeting with Union Berlin on Sunday evening, and for United it was a result that could very well be good news as well.

The resounding victory in the derby demonstrated the immense talent of the Dortmund team, but it also sent a title warning to Bayern as we enter a very interesting few weeks.

With so much to play for, the Dortmund team character will be put to the test and, in turn, United will learn a lot about Jadon Sancho and how he copes with the most intense pressure in his career until present.

The audience for the Bundesliga is growing at the moment, and every action over the next few weeks will be analyzed with a level of control it has never had before. The cliché is that pressure makes diamonds, and Sancho is certainly one in the rough.

Not only will a title challenge help shape Sancho as a talent, but achieving it would give United a boost at the end of the season.

For all his talent, the only trophy the 20-year-old won at the club level was the German Super Cup last year, the equivalent of the Charity Shield. Having yet to win the Bundesliga, Sancho is clearly encouraged to stay in Germany and be part of this incredible young team if he has not done so this season.

However, if Dortmund were to revise the deficit by four points and win the title in the coming weeks, there would be one less obstacle preventing United from attracting it this summer.

Not only would a potential title perhaps ease the pressure on Sancho to stay at Signal Iduna Park, but it would make Dortmund more attractive to attract a potential replacement, although their need to sell is also reduced.

Sancho has proven to be a talent well worth the wait for United, and even if they could not sign it this summer, it was worth the wait for another year. Winning the German top flight this season would provide the English international with the perfect platform to say goodbye, but even if they are missed, experience will be crucial in its continued development.
