Jadon Sancho returns after slow start to Manchester United career

Author: | Posted in UK No comments

Jadon Sancho was supported to get over his slow start at Manchester United and do well for the club.

The 21-year-old winger completed his much-anticipated transfer to Old Trafford in a £73m deal from Borussia Dortmund over the summer. However, after not getting a pre-season due to Euro 2020 and his relationship with England, Sancho got off to a slow start.

No goals or assists saw some criticism in his first six games for the club, but before his start against West Ham in Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup, the former Unified Women’s coach Casey Stoney believes in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not pay attention to any of them.

Speaking to Sky Sports as an expert before the game, Stoney said: “As a manager you don’t care about money, you’ve got a great asset. You have deep power. What Ole would want now is two. There are players in every position and he is especially in the upper zone. Mason Greenwood one of the best finishers in the club, Ole has said this before.

“He’s going to struggle to make sure he plays all the time but I think that’s a good thing for a manager.”

Former West Ham striker Carlton Cole also served as an expert and believes Sancho needs time to adjust before kicking and becoming a true United player.

“He didn’t hit the ground running. I can say it’s a different environment. [why he has started slow] when you’re so young and come to this height for this much money, it’ll tell you, I don’t care who you are, it’ll tell you.

“What helped Cristiano come in is that a lot of the pressure has been taken to be able to grow organically. I really think he will be one of the players growing for Manchester United and for United. He’s definitely there, obviously for the future, but money well spent.”
