Jadon Sancho says he has made a dream come true by releasing a new line of football boots with Nike.
The Borussia Dortmund attacker’s collection of footwear and apparel is heavily influenced by his south east London upbringing.
The word MEGZ – a nod to nutmeg – and “no ball games” appear as part of the design while “#SE11 4 J@DON” is written on the tongue.

The 20-year-old is extremely proud of having his own personal range with the brand and says it is a tribute to the people of his area of London, Kennington.
“It’s crazy to have my own collection with Nike, it truly is a dream come true”, Sancho said. “This isn’t just for me, it’s for all the ballers across London who were told they’d never make it.
“Every time I step out onto the pitch, I represent them all. It’s a privilege and an honour to have the kids of London on my back and release a collection that they all can relate to.
“We played anywhere and everywhere, that’s just the culture in London. All you needed was a football. You’d always have the one guy with a wonky foot that’d break windows and get us all in trouble.”
Written repeatedly across his new boots are the terms “Sancho Sauce” and “Vibez”, terms that are personal to the England international.

“Football is just a vibe, it gives you a feeling like no other and no matter how old you are, it never leaves you,” he added. “The sauce is something you’re born with, you either have it or you don’t. I’d use it to describe the way I play, the sauce spills all over the pitch.”
Sancho is coming off the back of a season in which he scored 20 goals and registered 18 assists in 44 appearances for Dortmund as they came second to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.
The former Manchester City winger has three years left on his contract with the German side but has been heavily linked to a return to the Premier League. Manchester United said to be leading the race to sign him, but Dortmund have dismissed any notion of him making a move this summer.
