Jadon Sancho accused of 'ruining his reputation' after buying £268 gold-covered steak


Borussia Dortmund and England star Jadon Sancho has been accused of ‘ruining his reputation’ after posting a video of himself applying salt to a £268 gold-covered steak in Dubai.

The 19-year-old shared a smoothly-produced video of a recent trip to the United Arab Emirates on Instagram, in which Sancho’s lavish lifestyle was on full display.

The teenager can be seen jumping off a yacht, feeding giraffes and riding a dune buggy. 

The video ends with Sancho applying salt to an expensive steak with celebrity chef Salt Bae at his Dubai restaurant.

And, as Franck Ribery can attest, this is a cardinal sin for a Bundesliga player.

Ribery was heavily criticised for posting a video of himself enjoying a gold-covered steak served up by Salt Bae in 2019.

Now, Sancho finds himself receiving the same scrutiny.

According to the Daily Mail, Bild have accused him of ‘ruining his reputation’, while Die Welt said the footage was ‘difficult to stomach for the public’.

Just look how much coverage Sancho’s video got in SportBild.

It’s hard to imagine Dortmund being as outraged by the video as the German media are, although it won’t help to repair Sancho’s strained relationship with his club.

The England international was left out of Dortmund’s squad after returning late from the international break in October.

The following month he missed a team meeting and was benched against Barcelona.

It’s led to concerns about Sancho’s attitude, but he’s not allowed the negative headlines to affect his form on the pitch.

The winger has scored nine goals and provided 10 assists in 15 league games this season.

He was ranked by Kicker magazine as the best winger in the Bundesliga this season, ahead of Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry.

Sancho is one of the brightest talents in the game and it’s hard not to feel that his meeting with Salt Bae wouldn’t have received nearly as much attention if he was a lesser name.
