Scottish football manager, former Borussia Dortmund player, Paul Lambert believes that while his failed move to Manchester United in the summer would unsettle him a bit, but he is already at a special club.

United put in a lot of effort to waste in the summer transfer window this year as they eventually failed to sign Sancho before deadline day.

Sancho then started the season in Germany in poor form but has recovered his spark in the last few weeks. Lambert believes this is the time for Sancho to stop thinking about anything and concentrate only on playing football.

Lambert told Star, "I understand people saying that he’s a young kid and that he isn’t performing as well as he has been but now he is starting to really play. I think the talk of Manchester United would unsettle him being a British guy, but he has got a special club in Borussia Dortmund."

The 51-year-old continued, "Once the fans come back, as he knows himself, there is no better place to play football because the atmosphere is incredible. Hopefully he helps the team to success."

Lambert was part of Borussia Dortmund's 1997 side who ended up winning the UEFA Champions League that season.
