Jadon Sancho is starting to show real talent after a slow start in life as a Manchester United player, said interim boss Ralph Rangnick. Sancho arrived at Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £ 73m ($ 95m) in July after a protracted United chase but failed to achieve success under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The England striker, who did not score until November, is a permanent player under Rangnick who took over at Old Trafford after Solskjaer was sacked that month. The 21-year-old put on another impressive display when United beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 on Saturday, providing an assist on Cristiano Ronaldo’s second hat-trick.
Rangnick said he was excited about Sancho’s return. They paid quite a lot of pounds for him to pull him out of Borussia Dortmund and if you pay that amount as a transfer fee for a player, he should be playing at that level, ”the German said.
After all, they are all human. Just because he spends a lot of money doesn’t mean he played at that level from the start. He told me that, of course, it became a problem for him to adapt to the intensity of the league, to the physical form of the league. Now he has managed to do it. stage now.
Rangnick said the winger was “now getting closer to Jadon Sancho, who I know from Germany”, adding that “in the end it’s about confidence”. When I came here, it was clear that we should try everything to help him be the best version of himself, ”added the interim boss.
Despite beating Spurs, United have the heavy task of reaching the top four, which will guarantee qualification to the Champions League next season. They are one point behind fourth -placed Arsenal with three games remaining.
