Gareth Southgate has revealed he will be a point of help to Jadon Sancho as he navigates the turbulent times of his career at Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho was dropped from Dortmund’s squad for a Bundesliga fixture last month and there have been rumours of him leaving.
“Any young player is going to have ups and downs,” Three Lions boss Southgate said.
“Jadon has played a lot of football. A couple of games lately he’s gone into physically fatigued. His club have taken the decision to keep playing him because he is a highly important player.
“It was a bit of a mixed bag recently. He was very good against Inter, he had a difficult game against Bayern, but the whole team did.
“I know what has gone on. He came to me at the beginning of the week and we had 25 minutes chatting about everything.
“We have a duty of care, almost, to him, to help him to progress and to develop as much as we can.”
