Jadon Sancho struggles as Manchester United recall Lisandro Martínez’s dilemma

Sancho’s struggles continue

If there were a week to summarize Jadon Sancho’s problems at Manchester United, it would be the one that just passed. The 22-year-old remains a frustrated figure in Erik ten Hag’s side, as he is a poor fit and a player with no clearly defined role to play.

In the space of eight days, he played three different positions and failed to excel at any of them. He struggled up the middle against Southampton and made little impact in any of the wide roles in the next two games.

Sancho could still have a role to play in the future, but at the moment it’s hard to justify him for a starting role, even when they have few options and he was overshadowed by Antony from the bench.

Ten Hag has worked hard to try to rejuvenate the former Borussia Dortmund striker, and that job is not done yet.
