“Jadon’s goal will give him a massive boost but I thought it was his performance overall,” Michael Carrick said after the Villarreal win.
“He likes the ball at his feet, you can see he has a smile on his face when he’s doing that, but the most important thing for me is the effort and application off the ball.
“At times he wasn’t getting the ball but, in the end, you get what you deserve and I was delighted for him to score.”
“That epitomizes the team’s performance – the determination to dig in at times. It is up to him how he kicks on now, what happens next. He has all the talent in the world.”
In his 15th game for Man United, Jadon Sancho finally managed to find the net, sealing his team’s 2-0 victory over Villarreal.
The 21-year-old winger was the Red Devils’ most expensive signing of the last summer and naturally, high hopes are pinned on him. After difficult first few months, the only way for him should be up.
