Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has claimed Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho currently “deserves” a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad over Jack Grealish.

Despite Sancho’s impressive form for Manchester United this season, he still missed out on a place in Southgate’s squad for Nations League games against Germany and Italy later this month.

“Gareth’s picked his players for a reason, possibly from previous squads,” Scholes told BT Sport.

“I think he probably deserves to be in over Jack Grealish at the minute.

“He scored a good goal against Liverpool and showed signs tonight. He’s better when he’s coming inside and linking play.

“He doesn’t have that electrifying pace to go past someone on the outside or on the inside. When he was good at Dortmund, he had [Erling] Haaland, [Achraf] Hakimi – he always had someone to link with.

“At Manchester United, if he can link with Fernandes or Eriksen, who are clever players to link with, he could be a good player for Man United.”
