Jadon Sancho appeared to speak in a fake German accent during a post-match interview following Borussia Dortmund’s 4-0 win at Schalke on Saturday.

The 20-year-old England winger became the youngest player to reach 35 Bundesliga goals as he helped Edin Terzić’s side to a thumping victory at the Veltins-Arena.

Speaking to Norwegian press alongside Erling Haaland after the match, Sancho – who was heavily linked with Man Utd over the summer – did not sound like his Camberwell-born self.

Fans have compared it to Joey Barton speaking in a French accent while at Marseille and Steve McClaren trying to sound Dutch while manager of FC Twente.
