‘Kind of crazy’ - Jadon Sancho reveals what it’s like playing with Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United

The United forward has spoken about what it’s like sharing a dressing room with Ronaldo and the impact he has had at the club.

Jadon Sancho has revealed what it is like to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United this season.

The England international joined the Red Devils from Borussia Dortmund in the summer for £73m on a five-year deal, with an option for a further year.

His recent form has also shown why United signed the 21-year-old, who assisted two of his teammates’ goals in their 4-2 win against Leeds United last weekend.

Jadon Sancho has impressed of late

Sancho has now expressed his delight to be working with Ronaldo at Old Trafford, admitting he was ‘stunned’ when the all-time leading goalscorer came into the Red Devils dressing room.

“It’s great to play next to what people call the G.O.A.T [greatest of all time],” the United no.25 told Football Focus.

“It’s actually kind of crazy. When he first came into the dressing room I was stunned, I couldn’t believe I was going to be playing alongside him.

“To have him around is fantastic. He’s a great player, a great guy and he always wants to win.

“For the younger players he’s making us learn new things in terms of what to do and how to do things to make it better, and I really appreciate him for that. He’s a great guy overall.”

Sancho was asked to go into more detail as to what Ronaldo has advised him to do in training and matches.

The Englishman added: “The movement on how to beat a player, being in the right positions when the midfield have the ball and being aware of what’s going on, because he’s been in the game so long, he has that experience.

“He’s just a magician.”

Ronaldo re-joined the Red Devils this summer from Juventus after a 12-year absence. The 37-year-old is the club’s current top scorer this season with 15 goals in all competitions.
