Thierry Henry accuses Jadon Sancho of ‘playing for himself’ at Manchester United

Thierry Henry accuses Jadon Sancho of ‘playing for himself’ at Man United since joining him for £ 73 million this summer … and tells the winger to ‘be lethal’, despite forcing an own goal in the win over Burnley

  • Manchester United beat Burnley 3-1 at Old Trafford on Thursday night
  • Jadon Sancho has not yet lit up his career since moving this summer
  • He forced the own goal against the Clarets, but frustrated Thierry Henry
  • Henry wants Sancho to try to ‘hit your man on the outside and be deadly’











Jadon Sancho forced a Burnley own goal in the 3-1 win over Manchester United, but Thierry Henry wants much more of the English winger.

He criticized the £ 73m summer signing, which has yet to really impress at the Old Trafford club.

Henry’s frustration with the talented former Borussia Dortmund man stems from the fact that he regularly cuts inside.

In the studio as an analyst for Amazon Prime, he said: ‘These are the type of players you would like to see, but he plays by himself.

‘When you’re in a one-on-one, you should put on a player. But it was Luke Shaw who forced him to accept these one-on-one.

‘What happened to hitting your husband on the outside? They will often go too much inside. Just hit your man on the outside and be deadly. ‘

After Scott McTominay put United ahead Thursday night, Sancho came up with his crucial contribution to the game.

He danced inside and fired a shot towards the far corner, only for Ben Mee to stick a leg out and divert it into his own net.

Sancho has not looked like the player he was for Dortmund last season, but fans will hope he can gather momentum under the Ralf Rangnick regime.

He did not manage to establish himself under Ole Gunnar Solskjær and routinely experienced heating the substitute bench.

The statistics provide gloomy reading for the summer signing with a goal in 15 Premier League matches during this period and the same number in the Champions League.
