Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to say that Marcus Rashford competition has led to Jadon Sancho’s downfall. He recently described the abuse of Harry Maguire as a disgrace, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, it is very obvious that Sancho prefers to play on the left wing, but since Rashford is doing extremely well in that position, Jadon has not gotten enough opportunities there.
Ole added that he feels sorry for Maguire because he actually improved the club’s defense when he initially joined from Leicester City.
His words, “Yes, I wanted to sign him [Sancho]. Manchester United will never sign a player the manager doesn’t want. That’s not the case everywhere. Jadon was put up as the No 1 target for the right wing by the scouts and when you look at his talent, I could see why.”
“Unfortunately, it has not worked out. When he arrived, he had to go to hospital and that was a setback as he couldn’t start the first games. He’s immensely talented and we haven’t seen the best of him. I hope we do, but he prefers to play left wing… where Marcus plays.”
“It’s a disgrace that he’s getting so much abuse. I feel sorry for him, but he’s a strong lad and I hope it turns for him. He raised our defence big time when he arrived and lifted the mood around the place.”
