'Bundesliga Starlet Can Become England's Neymar'

A Bundesliga starlet can go on to become "England's Neymar" if he is allowed to develop without restriction, according to a former youth coach.

Reports: Barca Monitoring Brazilian After International Debut

Borussia Dortmund's teenage sensation Jadon Sancho joined the German outfit for a reported fee of £8 million (R157 million) from Manchester City last season.

The winger, who was recently given Dortmund's No. 7 shirt, has taken the Bundesliga by storm and many are calling for him to be called up to the senior national team.

"Provided he doesn't become restricted, he could be our Neymar-type player – in terms of being unpredictable, playing on that left-hand side," Dan Micciche, Sancho's former youth coach, told The Guardian.

"Jadon did a lot of his learning on the street through informal play. And he's flamboyant, entertaining to watch. But like Neymar, he's effective with it. In most games he'll create something – it's not a beauty contest. He's not on the pitch flicking it over someone's head for the sake of it.

"First of all, his mentality is strong – he's gone from Watford to Man City, so moving up north – and then had the mentality to move to another country.

"He's travelled the world with club and country – that takes a lot of discipline, sacrifice. And he's delivered on every stage he's been put on, including now in Germany."

The 18-year-old has already made history during his time with Dortmund, becoming the youngest Englishman to ever score in the Bundesliga.
