Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has warned Jadon Sancho that he would end up like his teammate, Donny van de Beek’ at Old Trafford if he is not careful.
Sancho has struggled to feature regularly for Man United so far this season since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund for £73 million in the summer.
The England international was left on the bench as Man United defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 on Saturday.
The winger did not also feature for Man United in their 5-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend.
“I can’t help thinking about Van de Beek,” Neville was quoted by Metro UK as saying after Man United defeated Tottenham.
“Who has put their name on him? Who’s sponsoring that at Manchester United, that £40 million that’s been spent on that kid who’s been sitting in the stands and not kicked a football for nearly 18 months?
“Sancho, if he’s not careful, is going to end up exactly the same.
“He’s played in some pretty appalling performances in the last few [weeks], not him… I mean team performances.
“He’s come into a club that’s looked completely disjointed in terms of their football. He’s played in a far better team and unit at Dortmund.
“He’s come in here and probably thinking, ‘what the hell am I in here? What is this?’.
“There’s no organisation, there’s no structure, the defensive work rate is poor.
“He’s actually the only player, when you look at the defensive running stats of Manchester United’s front players, that’s got anywhere near… I think he’s fifth or sixth out of the top four clubs’ front players, he was in the top 10.”
Sancho will now hope to feature for Man United when they take on Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday.
