Jadon Sancho explains key Watford role in journey to Manchester United



Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho admits it was at Watford where he first started to develop a passion for dazzling skills and entertaining supporters.

Having struggled to make an initial impact at Old Trafford, the England international has since become a key part of the United side and is almost certain to start against the Hornets on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

It was during four hugely successful seasons in Germany that Sancho cut his teeth as a professional.

Before that spell at Borussia Dortmund, he was a shining light for the Manchester City age-group teams.

Fast forward even further still and it was at Vicarage Road where the 21-year-old took his first steps to becoming a United star and 23-cap international.

Sancho was reunited with Watford in November during an alarming 4-1 defeat that proved to be the final straw for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his time at the helm.

Interim manager Ralf Rangnick has since come in to steady the ship, offering Sancho fresh impetus, too, as he gears up to meet his first club, once again, at Old Trafford.

During a wide-ranging interview with the MUFC website, he said: “At Watford I used to work on a lot of skills and wanted to show people what I can do.

“I’ve kept that throughout my career, but what has changed is I’m less greedy now. I like to pass now, but before at Watford I was greedy. I never used to pass!

How important will Sancho become for United? Have your say in the comments section below?

“When you beat your opponent, you still need to have that awareness of what’s going on around you. When I was at Dortmund, I learnt how to beat a man and give the ball in tight situations.

“That’s why I had so many assists there, also recently because I wanted to bring that here.”
