Former Bayern Munich and Liverpool star Dietmar Hamann has hailed Manchester United’s signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
United paid £73m to finally land their man, and Hamann has hailed the signing as a top one for Manchester United.
The former Bayern and Liverpool defender has even backed Sancho to bring out the best of Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba.
“It’s a big season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United too and I expect Jadon Sancho to be a star at Old Trafford,” Hamann told the Racing Post.
“I’ve rarely seen a winger who can beat his man so easily, he drops the shoulder and just walks past defenders.
“Sancho could galvanise the likes of Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba at United too. Having watched him in the Bundesliga, he makes other players better, creating chances and pulling defenders out of position, and we saw glimpses of that in England’s quarter-final win against Ukraine at Euro 2020.
“I was surprised that he was on the periphery of that tournament, he would be my first choice as a manager.
“In my view, not only is Sancho England’s best winger, he’s the best winger in world football and United fans should be very excited about his return to Manchester.”
