Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed that the struggle of Jadon Sancho at Man United is hurting his soul. Sancho has struggled to nail down a first-team berth and has started just two of the five league games so far. Watzke revealed that his slow start is partly down to not being able to nail down a starting place in the England squad. He started just one game at Euro 2020 during their run to the finals.
“Of course, I keep track of what he’s doing. It also hurts my soul that he is so neglected,” Watzke said talking about Man United winger Jadon Sancho. “I love Jadon, when you see him play you get tears in your eyes. I think his problem is that he’s not that settled in the English national team.”
“I know he’s still young, I get that he’s still learning but this is not a FIFA game, it’s not all about dribbling and little flicks, nice when they come off. But play proper football,” Manchester United legend Paul Ince said.
“We knew his talent, and we signed him with the thought that we are going to have a top forward here for the next 10 or 12 years,” the Norwegian said.” Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said. “Jadon’s finding his feet, it’s unfortunate that he fell ill just when he was going to come in, so he was out, and he lost a bit of pre-season. But he is working hard and he will be good.”
