Thierry Henry Drops Truth Bomb On Jadon Sancho, Tells Him Exactly Where He's Going Wrong

​Thierry Henry says Jadon Sancho is 'playing within himself' despite forcing an own-goal in Manchester United's win over Burnley.

He's slowly starting to show his potential at Man United following his mega £73 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

But Henry wants more from the 21-year-old, urging him to be 'lethal' and take on defenders instead of cutting inside.

Speaking on Amazon Prime after Man United's 3-1 win, he explained: "Those are the types of players you want to watch but he is playing within himself. ​

"When you are in a one-on-one, you should take a player on. But it was Luke Shaw who was forcing him to take on those one-on-ones."​

The Arsenal legend added: "What happened to beating your man on the outside? They often want to go too much inside. Just beat your man on the outside and be lethal."​

Scott McTominay, who starred in midfield, and Cristiano Ronaldo also got on the score-sheet, with Aaron Lennon pulling on back for the visitors.

Ralf Rangnick was impressed by Sancho and the other attacking players, praising their work effort. 

"It was important today to raise the energy level," the German said "The whole team performance was a lot better, I was pleased with the performances of our wingers - Jadon did well.

"Mason [Greenwood], Eddie [Edinson Cavani] and Cristiano [Ronaldo], the work effort was amazing."
