Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho has admitted his first season at Manchester United was not a smash hit, although the Englishman claimed he learned a lot from his struggles. Sancho joined United from Dortmund the previous summer for a fee of £73m.
Manchester United finally secured their priority target last summer when they signed long-term target Jadon Sancho the previous summer from the German giants. Borussia Dortmund. The English club’s tumultuous form throughout the campaign hampered their ability to feature consistently for their new side and as a result Sancho drifted in and out of the starting line-up.
The Englishman has started his life at Old Trafford slowly although he has started to replicate his form from Germany to England in recent weeks. The 21-year-old has made 31 appearances for the Red Devils so far while scoring five goals and registering two assists in all competitions.
The former Dortmund star revealed he was grateful to the German club for giving him a chance to produce at the highest level and played down suggestions he had paved the way for other youngsters to venture into Europe.
“The club[Dortmund] tried very hard for me. Dortmund gave me that chance and I think I did the job. I wouldn’t say I started a trend like many say. But maybe other young English players since then have had more confidence in choosing the club where they want to play,” Sancho told Sky Sports Germany.
“I’m very self-critical. It’s definitely not my best season, but I’ve learned a lot. New league, new teammates. I would say I’m only now starting to really free myself. I feel more and more comfortable and happy,” he added.
