Manchester United Player 'Doesn't Suit The Club' And Would Be 'Better Off' Playing For Liverpool

Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho has been told his style of play 'doesn't suit the club' and he'd be better off at bitter rivals Liverpool.


It's been a tricky start to life at Old Trafford for Sancho since his £73 million move from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

The England international is yet to score or assist in a United shirt and a recent change in formation means he's spent a lot of time on the bench.

Former Premier League defender Jonathan Woodgate is a big fan of Sancho, but told Ladbrokes he feels United is the wrong team for him.

Instead, he thinks a move to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool who play a fast, attacking style of football would've suited Sancho more.

"Things haven't gone exactly according to plan for Sancho since he signed for Man United this summer," he told Ladbrokes. "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."

Sancho was linked with a move to Liverpool before eventually setting on United.

The Red Devils' switch to a five-man defence has seen Sancho suffer but there could be a solution, albeit a strange one, on the horizon.

Per The Athletic, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could use Sancho as a wing-back ahead of Aaron-Wan Bissaka, who has been criticised for his lack of attacking quality.

It's believed Sancho has played in the position during training and is seen as an option in games United have more possession.

The 21-year-old has also struggled with injury since returning to England and even spent his first few weeks in training wearing cotton buds in his ears due to an infection.

Although he has a wealth of experience in the Bundesliga and Champions League, Sancho told a teammate the pace of the Premier League "was something to behold".

The teammate in question told him to "Get used to it" following September's 4-1 victory over Newcastle United.
