What did this pundit make of Jadon Sancho’s performance?

Former Manchester United player Owen Hargreaves believes Jadon Sancho has ‘so much talent’ and the best is yet to come from him yet.

The attacker made the move to Old Trafford last year from Borrusia Dortmund but has taken a while to adapt to life in the Premier League.

He made 38 appearances in all competitions last term and chipped in with five goals.

Sancho has already found the net twice in this campaign.

‘So much talent’...

Speaking on BT Sport after the winger scored the winner for the Red Devils, ex-midfielder Hargreaves was full of praise for the England international and said:

“There is so much talent in Jadon. It has been difficult for him because he came into a team that was really struggling. I think they brought him in to play on the right-hand side because they have Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial on the left.

“Jadon looks better off the left-hand side, I think all of them do. There is a fantastic player in there, there really is.

“At Dortmund he had (Achraf Hakimi) at right-back, who took the width when he came inside, and then he had (Erling) Haaland to link with so that whole right-hand channel was world class. With the personnel that United had, it didn’t really suit the way he wanted to play.”

He added: “There is so much more to come from Jadon.”

Bright future

Sancho will be hoping he can play a big part for United this term and make up for lost time.

The London-born man is enjoying plenty of game time under Erik ten Hag at the moment and has helped his side win their last three Premier League games on the spin.

It was a tough start to this season for the Red Devils after they lost their opening couple of matches against Brighton and Hove Albion and Brentford.

However, they have started to pick up a bit of form and have won their last three outings against Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester.

Next up for United is a home clash against unbeaten Arsenal this weekend and Sancho will be hungry for another goal.
