Ralf Rangnick has claimed that Jadon Sancho is slowly starting to find his feet with his performances in the first team and is beginning to replicate his performances from his time in Germany. The England winger joined United from Dortmund in the summer for a fee of £73m.
Manchester United have sealed the deal for long-term target Jadon Sancho in an extended transfer saga this summer from the German giants Borussia Dortmund. The Englishman had struggled to find his place with his new team at the start of the season. Sancho drifted in and out of the starting lineup with United’s tumultuous form hampering his ability to produce consistent performances.
The 21-year-old has slowly started to come to life in recent months and has been named United’s Player of the Month for February. Sancho featured in all seven of United’s games last month and scored his first goals at Old Trafford in draws with Middlesbrough and Southampton.
The England international also referred to two assists in a Man of the Match performance at Leeds while also scoring against Manchester City and provide an assist in their win over Spurs. Rangnick admitted that Sancho was starting to play to his full potential.
“Jadon Sancho is now getting closer to the Jadon Sancho I knew in Germany. In the end, it’s all about confidence. Playing time, confidence. Confidence, playing time. He was playing at a very high level. The club has paid a lot for him and if you pay that amount of money in transfer fees for a player, he should be playing at that kind of level,” Rangnick told Sky Sports.
“In the end, they are all human beings. Just because it costs a lot of money doesn’t mean it plays at that level to begin with. He told me that of course it was a problem for him to adapt to the intensity of the league, the physical aspect of the league. He managed to do it. I’m happy to see him playing at this level right now,” he added.
