‘Things haven’t gone according to plan’ — Manchester United star told he shouldn’t have signed up for United

Former Premier League defender, Jonathan Woodgate has claimed that Jadon Sancho would be a different player if he chose Liverpool over Manchester United.

Sancho made a £73m million switch from Borussia Dortmund to United during the summer, and has struggled to impress ever since, with zero goals and assists to his name.

The United winger has since been relegated to starting from the bench by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but Woodgate believes the story would have been different if he had gone to Liverpool, because Jurgen Klopp’s style of play suits him.

He told Ladbrokes, “Things haven’t gone exactly according to plan for Sancho since he signed for Man United this summer, and I put it down to the style of play; it doesn’t suit him.

“If United replicated Dortmund’s approach then it would be a different ball game altogether, but Man United don’t play that way; they don’t play the sort of football Sancho is used to.

“Jadon Sancho is an extraordinary talent; if you play to his strengths, then he’ll come good. There’s no doubt in my mind that he’ll come good again.

“Put him in the Liverpool team, and he’d be a completely different player, I’m sure.”
