Manchester United fans thought their club would be the go-to club for the 2021/22 season with the supposed quality that was added to the side in the summer transfer window.
However, it’s obvious that all hasn’t gone according to plan for their Norwegian boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. Just one of the new arrivals has been impressive thus far and it comes as no major surprise that it’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Meanwhile, one of their major recruits of the summer has woefully failed to live up to expectations and it’s no other than Jadon Sancho.
The English attacker came with lots of promises to Old Trafford this summer after Borussia Dortmund decided to stop playing hardball and allow him to make a return to England.
I guess Jadon Sancho, based on the reputation that preceded him at Signal Iduna Park and the Bundesliga, thought that he would take the Premier League by storm after making a return.
However, this has not been the case as the English attacker is yet to make any significant contribution to the Old Trafford outfit.
Sancho has been underwhelming for the Red Devils thus far in the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. He’s yet to grab a goal or an assist this term and this has been a major turnoff to United fans who had high hopes after his acquisition.
Some are of the opinion that he needs time to adapt to the Premier League while some believe that Solskjaer’s tactics have contributed to his poor start to life in the Premier League and in a United shirt. Regardless, I believe he should be doing better irrespective of whatever factors may be in play.
At the moment, Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho is a shadow of himself in comparison to the dreaded version of himself at Borussia Dortmund.
Jadon Sancho can easily pass for one of the worst summer transfers of the 2021/22 season in England and in Europe at the moment, based on his numbers and inconsistent performances.
There is still more time for him to prove himself this season and he’ll get to do that after the international break. Folks always wondered why he was not a Gareth Southgate favorite in the Three Lions side before the Man United move. Well, this may have been one of the reasons.
Regardless, we can’t help but hope he comes good at Old Trafford but he’ll have to do that as soon as possible as things aren’t even quite alright at Old Trafford presently.
