Jadon Sancho’s Manchester United career has not got off to the start he or the club would have wanted. After a two-plus year pursuit. United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally secured Sancho this summer for £73million from German side Borussia Dortmund.
Making his debut off the bench in the opening game of the Premier League season against Leeds United. The England international has only started four of United’s 10 games in all competitions and completed 90 minutes just once.
The England international was expected to be the headline act in United’s transfer dealings. But saw his arrival completely overshadowed by the shock return of Cristiano Ronaldo. And the Portuguese legend has somewhat taken the limelight off Sancho when it comes to on-field performances as well. While Ronaldo has five goals from his opening seven games back at Old Trafford. The former Dortmund star is still yet to open his account.
Future still bright for Jadon Sancho
But Shaw is adamant that his international colleague will hit the height that saw him become one of the most sought after attacking players in European football. “Sometimes, for people, it takes time,”. “But I wouldn’t say he’s struggling at the moment. Solskjaer has insisted he has no concerns over his big summer signing. And would still make the same move again in hindsight.
United legend Gary Neville felt he gave the best performance of his young career at his new club. He told his Sky Sports Podcast: “You come away from that game and everyone was disappointed. But I thought Jadon Sancho gave his best 20-minute performance in a Manchester United shirt.
Even last season Jadon Sancho didn’t score his first Bundesliga goal of last season until Matchday 14. But ended the season with 20 goal involvements in the league. The future looks bright for Sancho and Manchester United.
