Jadon Sancho will likely miss Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League showdown with Manchester City on Tuesday.
The Borussia Dortmund star had been on the sidelines for the past month due to a muscle injury and there was hope that he would make his return to the then Etihad.
However, it now looks like he won’t be fit in time to face his old club.

Sancho has scored six goals and provided nine assists in the Bundesliga for Dortmund, which have won just one of their last five games.
At the end of last week, Dortmund’s interim manager Edin Terzic had admitted that Sancho was unlikely to be fit for the game.
“With Jadon, we hope the situation will change with him in the next seven to 10 days,” Terzic said.
Reports in Germany have indicated that Sancho returned to Germany last week after working on his rehabilitation in Dubai.
Terzic’s timetable suggests he’s likely to be fit for the second leg of the game against City.
