Manchester United Winger Jadon Sancho Mocked By Sky In Brutal James Bond Gag

Jadon Sancho has been brutally mocked by Sky Germany following his slow start to life at Manchester United.

The 21-year-old is yet to score or register an assist in seven Premier League appearances for the Red Devils, prompting the broadcaster to give him the unfortunate nickname, "007."

Sky produced a brutal, but rather funny graphic of Sancho wearing a tuxedo alongside the caption: "They call me 007."

Sancho was a summer signing from Borussia Dortmund after arriving in a £73million deal. He was tipped to make a big impact at Old Trafford following an impressive spell in Germany, where he scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in 137 appearances for Dortmund.

But he has found life tough going back in English football, and only been handed three Premier League starts to date by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He has been named in the starting line-up for two of Manchester United's Champions League games against BSC Young Boys and Villarreal, but was hauled off after 37 minutes against the Swiss side in favour of Diogo Dalot following Aaron Wan-Bissaka's sending off.

His only full 90-minute appearance came in a 1-0 defeat to West Ham United in a Carabao Cup third round tie.

Sancho was also an unused substitute in Sunday's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, indicating just how far the youngster's stock has fallen since arriving amidst big fanfare in the summer.

The winger will be hoping for more game time when United face Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.

The Red Devils then turn their attention back to the Champions League for the return fixture with Atalanta next Tuesday, before hosting Manchester City at Old Trafford on 6th November.

These are three crucial games for Solskjaer, who will be desperately looking to turn round an abject series of results to save his job.
