Manchester City Fans Aimed Brutal Chant At Jadon Sancho As He Warmed Up In 18th Minute

Jadon Sancho didn't get the warmest of welcomes as he warmed up in front of the Manchester City fans during Saturday afternoon's Manchester derby.

The 21-year-old forward, who joined United from Borussia Dortmund in the summer for a reported £73 million, spent two years of his youth career playing for City.

Despite impressing at academy level, Sancho never made a senior appearance for The Citizens and well, a large section of City supporters let him know about it.

As he ran up and down the Old Trafford touchline, the away support were heard chanting "City reject, City reject" towards the England international.

Sancho hasn't enjoyed the most prolific of starts in a Manchester United shirt since his transfer. In fact, he is still waiting on his first goal and assist for the club, 11 games into the Premier League campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has since responded to suggestions that the Sancho signing was a mistake.

"Jadon is going to play a lot of games, he's going to get better and better, of course," he said ahead of the derby.

"The last couple of games, he has maybe suffered from the system we have played, but that's not going to be a permanent 3-5-2 team that we are always going to see.

"You will see Jadon play a lot and he'll do well for us, he knows what we want from him and I speak to him regularly. That will be fine.

"We knew what we signed when we signed him, we believe he's going to be one of the top forwards for many, many years, the next decade at least."

It has been a torrid first-half performance from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and in all honestly, the Reds are lucky to go into the half-time break at 2-0 down after goals from Eric Bailly [OG] and Bernardo Silva.

Thoughts on the game so far?
