Jadon Sancho’s slow start with Manchester United draws honest reactions from teammates
Jadon Sancho has had a slow start as one of Manchester United’s latest star signings, drawing honest reactions from teammates Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard.
After spending four seasons with Borussia Dortmund, Sancho left for United through a £73million transfer. Aside from Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer sending shockwaves around the football world, this move sparked a lot of excitement within Man U’s fanbase. However, the winger’s recent performance with Man United has not been exciting, registering zero goals and assists throughout nine appearances for the Reds this season.
Sancho was in the middle of numerous transfer rumors last season; many football fans have been suspecting the Englishman’s inevitable transfer to United after scoring 49 goals and providing 60 assists over three seasons at Dortmund.
United has also experienced recent struggles as a team, winning just two of their last six matches. Shaw shared his thoughts on Sancho’s recent form.
“Sometimes, for people, it takes time, but I wouldn’t say he’s struggling at the moment.”
“He’s working extremely hard behind closed doors and training really well and looking really sharp. He just hasn’t had that bit of luck that sometimes you need for your first goal or first assist.
Lingard has had his own experiences of struggling with United in the past but has recently found his form after a brief stint with West Ham United. The 28-year old shares how much faith he has in Sancho,
“I think it’s going to take some time to adapt.”
“He’s only going to get better. We have full confidence and hope in Jadon to succeed.”
Still, it is pretty early to judge whether Sancho’s transfer is a failure or not, but it would be a good time for the Englishman to step up given Manchester United’s recent form.
