Jadon Sancho’s improvement in recent months has been one of the few bright spots for Manchester United in recent times. The English international had arrived from Borussia Dortmund with a lot of expectations and in one of the biggest transfer moves in Premier League history, but he certainly found the going tough upon arrival at Old Trafford.
Sancho had been one of the most effective and exciting wingers in world football during his time at Borussia Dortmund but did not look nowhere near that player during his first few months at Manchester United.
He has come into his own in recent weeks though and is starting to have an effect on games once again. And he has named three players in the Manchester United dressing room that he is learning a lot from both on and off the pitch.
The three in question are Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane. As reported by the Express, Sancho said:
"“You’ve got Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane… all these guys have won major trophies and just being in the changing room with them gives you a blessed feeling.“I’m definitely learning from them, on and off the pitch, especially in terms of their recovery and how they make themselves better.“I’m taking in all the information I can and trying to put it into my game.”"
Sancho names three leaders in the Manchester United dressing room
It is no surprise when it comes to the players that Sancho has named. Ronaldo is one of the greatest in the history of the game. Varane has multiple Champions League titles and a World Cup to his name.
And while there are question marks over Pogba and his consistency, on his day, he is one of the top midfielders in the world as well and is a World Cup winner with the France national team, even though his time at Manchester United might not have been nearly as fruitful.
Thus, those are all great players to learn from and it certainly looks like they are having a positive impact on Sancho, who has improved a lot during his time at Old Trafford, and is starting to look like a player who can be a major part of Manchester United for years to come.
