Man Utd transfer target Jadon Sancho reveals 'sleep problem' and admits he needs to be more professional

JADON SANCHO says he needs to be more professional after revealing his "sleep problem" sometimes makes him late for training.

The 20-year-old was fined £86,000 by Borussia Dortmund in October for arriving to the club late after returning from England duty.

And he was also benched for the Barcelona clash in November after he missed a team meeting due to being asleep.

Sancho even incurred the wrath of the Bundesliga in June when he was slapped with an £8,900 fine after breaking lockdown rules to get a haircut.

The incident led Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc to admit the club are losing patience with the ex-Manchester City youth star.

And Sancho has stated he is aware he needs to work on his professionalism in an interview with SoccerBible.

He said: "In Germany there’s a few things that I still need to work on.

"Sometimes I’m late to training and it’s things like this that I need to work on, because I have a sleep problem.

"Little things like that, where I need to be a little more professional and put things right.

"But I’m working on it and the club’s helping me and the team is helping me. Slowly but surely, as I get older, I feel like I’m learning new things.

"People do say that I’m very mature for my age. I guess leaving home and learning things for myself has helped with that."

Sancho even commented on speculation regarding his future as Manchester United line up making an offer for the exciting forward.

Asked whether he wishes the rumours would go away, he said: "No, the media’s the media.

"They’re always going to try and create a story, but this is how you manage it.

"For me, I just focus on my football. I just want to do what’s best for my team and win titles at the end of the day."
