'Completely different': Pundit claims £100m attacker would be transformed if he joined Arsenal
TalkSPORT’s Jason Cundy believes Arsenal would get the best out of under-performing Manchester United winger, Jadon Sancho.
Sancho was once again under par as the Red Devils snuck a win in the Europa League last night. The England winger has completed 90 minutes just once in the Premier League this season, scoring just two goals. All in all, Sancho simply hasn’t hit the heights many expected he would when United shelled out more than £70m to sign him.
However, TalkSPORT’s Cundy has preached patience when it comes to Sancho and believes if he was at Arsenal, we’d be seeing a completely different player.
“Man United have to be patient, there’s a lot going on at United. If you put him in Arsenal right now, who are a side who are completely different to what they were 12 months ago, if you put Sancho in an Arsenal side I think you’d see a different Sancho,” Cundy said on TalkSPORT.
“He’s had a change of manager. It’s not been a happy club, they’re not playing well, it’s a lot to deal with personally.”
Sancho will hope to get another chance this weekend when United take on Everton at Goodison Park.
TBR’s View: Sancho Wouldn’t Even Get In Arsenal’s Side Right Now
That’s not to say Cundy doesn’t have a bit of a point. Sancho probably would flourish more in Arsenal’s system.
But, who is he getting in ahead of? Saka and Martinelli have the two wide positions locked down and there’s simlpy no chance Sancho replaces them right now. Down the middle, he’s not getting in over Odegaard or Jesus either.
Put simply, Jadon Sancho just needs to do better. Sure, United aren’t perfect and have been in turmoil at times. But this is a player who shone for Dortmund, so he just needs to find his way and get back on the horse as they say.
