Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is optimistic United summer signing Jadon Sancho will do well at the club after his cameo appearance at Atalanta on Tuesday night.

The England international moved to Old Trafford in a £73m deal from Borussia Dortmund, but has found it difficult in his first few months at the Theatre of Dreams. The 21-year-old has made just three Premier League starts and two more in the Champions League, and is yet to open his account for the club.

Despite the player’s rocky start to his Manchester United career, Solskjaer is certain Sancho will be exceptional for the club soon and in years to come.

“I commit a crime every time I pick a team because there’s always players ho get left out,” Solskjaer told a press conference after United’s 2-2 draw with Atalanta.

“At Tottenham we went a different system, today still a different system with the back five. Jadon will come good, Jadon has got a great work rate and attitude and quality.

“I thought he was really sharp when he came on, the first header that he cleared for us, he was sharp on the ball.

“They’ll all have a big role to play and he’ll have many many years as a good player here.”
